Progress in Upscaling Salinity Gradient Power (Blue Energy), an Innovative Clean Energy

Join us for an international and European overview of the newest projects on upscaling Salinity Gradient Power (SGP) – sometimes also referred to as 'Blue Energy'.

Projects are for one megawatt and further. Discussion of the progress of the strategic European (Horizon 2020) and international projects will take place with their main project leaders. The conference will also give insight into the EU policies that affect this innovative clean energy and a discussion will be held with European and international stakeholders on upscaling the first systems in a natural environment. Attention will be given to projects outside of Europe, including in Latin America (Colombia) and Canada (Quebec).

The meeting includes leading presenters from The Netherlands (Redstack), Spain (U Vallodolid), Colombia (U del Norte), Belgium (Ghent University, EC and NGOs ), Italy (UNIPA) and Germany (industrial corporations from the water sector). A new book on SGP will also be presented.
