Résumé :

Blue energy represents a large reservoir of renewable osmotic energy that can be converted into electricity by reverse electrodialysis (RED). This method is based on ion-exchange membrane. Before large scale production, these membranes are compared on very small samples on the basis of the power they enable to produce per unit area. Through a systematic study of the effect of the membrane size on the power density, we show experimentally that for classical measurement cells, the power density strongly varies with the size of the membrane : the smaller the membrane, the higher the power density. The results are explained by a theoretical modeling which describes the effect of the access resistance at the scale of the membrane. Based on this work, a few recommendations are formulated to perform scalable and meaningful measurements of membrane resistance and power density.
