Ocean Current Energy, An Untapped Resource

  According to the Ocean Energy Council, “ocean [or marine] currents are one of the largest untapped renewable energy resource on the planet. Preliminary surveys show a global potential of over 450,000 MW, representing a market of more than US$550 billion”.   Energy derived from the world’s oceans is found in...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

    Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) makes use of the temperature differences between the deep cold and relatively warmer surface waters of the ocean to generate a constant, clean source of electricity. This constancy differs from the output of renewable resources such as wind and wave energy that sometimes...
