Oceanic Thermal Energy Conversion system for Gulf Restoration Venture (OTEC-Gulf) is being created in this two-phase effort. In Phase I, we will conduct extensive, long-term testing of concepts over a two-year period in a one-tenth-scale prototype. In Phase II, deploy 100’s of 100-megawatt OTEC systems.
The system is an alteration of the Oscillating Water Column principle (OWC). Many companies have constructed and tested at sea OWC systems and the system has been accepted
as a credible design philosophy for sea wave energy capture and deployed in shoreline, fixed installations, and in deep water.
To create a new world, the advanced development of alternative energy sources is very important. There is plenty of heat energy available in solar radiation. Now we have some current technologies to grab the sun's heat. But improvements are needed for a sustainable future.
