Stanford scientists harness energy from mixing of fresh and saltwater

Scientists at Stanford University have announced the development of affordable, durable technology that could harness so-called blue energy. A research paper recently published describes the battery and claims that the battery could be a source of renewable energy in places where freshwater and saltwater mingle. The team says that blue energy is an “immense and untapped source of renewable energy.”

The battery the team at Stanford has created is a significant step forward in capturing that energy without membranes, moving parts, or putting energy into the effort. The battery taps into salt gradients. The battery prototype was tested, and the scientists monitored its energy production while flushing it was alternating hourly exchanges of wastewater effluent fr
