Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

What Is Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that makes use of the temperature difference that exists in the ocean between the deeper, cooler waters and the warmer, shallower or surface waters in order to power a heat engine that generates useful work, most commonly in the form of electricity. OTEC is able to function with a capacity factor that is very high, and as a result, it is able to function in base load mode.
