Red Stack

RedStack is working intensively and successfully on the development, scaling up and future commercialisation of energy generation from differences in salinity, often referred to as Salinity Gradient Power (SGP). This form of energy – often called Blue Energy – was first described in 1954 by the English researcher Pattle in the journal Nature. Of course, the principle had to be translated into actual process technology and equipment that is technically sound, resistant, and stays in one piece, and is accepted by users in terms of price. This is the source of REDstack’s mission.

Blue Energy Technology has been nominated for the prestigious “Aqua Tech” Award 2023.

The Problem: Create Blue Energy in India

There are many rivers which flow into sea in India. As river water and sea water has huge salinity difference, the possibility of constructing plants to generate electricity is plenty. Additionally, affluent India is always energy hungry.

In collaboration with REDStack, Netherlands, CIT is the first institution to bring this technology to India by liaising with the Government of Karnataka. Researchers at CCCIR will tailor-make solutions to contextualise the specific requirements to India.

Cambridge Institute of Technology focuses on imparting quality education to all. We provide an opportunity to all our students to develop the qualities of global professionals. An academic platform through standardized teaching learning processes assist the students towards achieving academic excellence. At Cambridge  Institute of Technology, the students are trained on emerging technologies through Industry collaborative programmes, Real time projects and Internship opportunities through Industry sponsored labs, participate in research activities in advanced research labs. A start up ecosystem is established at the Institute for students and faculty with mentoring, training and infrastructure support to inculcate the start up culture among the young minds. Students have ample opportunities to participate in sports and extra curricular activities. Technical competencies through various clubs at the Departments. Our goal is to develop our students as technocrats who can contribute  to the society and build a sustainable eco system.
