What is OTEC ?

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the natural temperature difference in tropical oceans between the surface water and deep water to generate renewable, baseload power, day and night, year-round. OTEC, best applicable in tropical regions with population centres near the coast, provides the largest overall potential of all the ocean energy resources. It can fully meet the world’s rapidly growing energy needs.

OTEC  is entering the phase of commercial power production with projects developed or announced in, amongst others, the Caribbean, China, Japan, Hawaii, Korea and India. This opens up opportunities for industry active in offshore sectors, such as offshore wind energy and oil & gas.
