Floating solar park North Sea

A consortium of six Dutch organizations parties is developing an unique project: the world’s first floating solar park at sea. The ‘solar ísland’ should be a solution for locations where land surface is scarce, such as islands.

Utrecht University will investigate the energy production of the floating solar park. The park is located about 15 kilometers off the coast of The Hague on the North Sea.

Boosting Capacitive Blue-Energy and Desalination Devices with Waste Heat

Energy from seawater

Red power plant Blue Energy

The energy output of blue engines can be increased by a factor of order 2 if warm (waste-heated) fresh water is mixed with cold sea water.

Moreover, the underlying physics can also be used to optimize the reverse process of capacitive desalination of water. Read More
