INES – Alliance for Osmotic Energy

INES – European Alliance for Osmotic Energy purpose is to try to find and develop solutions to the common problems identified as crucial to the development of salinity gradient power including fouling of membranes, investigating financing possibilities for pilots and demonstration projects, solutions for water pre-treatment, ecological aspects, and permitting of larger installations.

Additionally, it is intended to contribute to the further development of the sector and to bring membrane producers, developers, investors, and other potential funding organisations, together with international, European, national and regional authorities. The aim is to facilitate upscaling by closer international and European cooperation.
