Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion model

Renewable energy sources are always of interest where they provide a pathway to conservation of  non-renewable resources. One method is to harness temperature change.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process used to produce electricity based on the temperature difference between deep cold seawater and warm tropical surface seawater. Because this temperature difference is small, large quantities of seawater are processed with the attractive benefits of firm base load (24/7) power production, no direct carbon emissions and an environmentally sustainable plant that can provide massive levels of energy.
