    Osmotic Energy

"Where freshwater and saltwater meet, such as where a river flows into a fjord or the sea, the salty water naturally diffuses towards the freshwater. Placing a membrane between the freshwater and the saltwater can capture that energy and convert it into electricity."

Interesting idea — too bad it didn't come 20 years ago….
