Energy From Evaporation Could Power Much Of US: Study

Evaporation from the lakes and reservoirs in the US could generate nearly 70 per cent of the power that the country currently produces, a study has found.

Though still limited to experiments in the lab, evaporation-harvested power could be made on demand, day or night, overcoming the intermittency problems plaguing solar and wind energy.

“We have the technology to harness energy from wind, water and the Sun, but evaporation is just as powerful. We can now put a number on its potential,” said Ozgur Sahin, a biophysicist at Columbia University in the US. Read More…
