Osmotic ballasts enhance faradaic efficiency in closed-loop, membrane-based energy systems

Aqueous processes for energy storage and conversion based on reverse electrodialysis (RED) require a significant concentration difference across ion exchange membranes, creating both an electrochemical potential and an osmotic pressure difference. In …

Energy storage by reversible electrodialysis: The concentration battery

Reverse electrodialysis has long been recognized as a tool for harnessing free energy from salinity gradients but has received little attention for its potential in energy storage applications. Here we present the experimental and modeled performance …
