What’s so great about offshore OTEC and NEW-OTEC?
Located off the shore of every continent except Europe, is a clean-energy equivalent of the World’s Oil-fields. The OTEC resource could provide power to most of the world; thus, it has a value of many trillions of pounds.
However, the distance of the resource from shore in many cases, is quite large; large enough to be prohibitive on a small scale. Large scale OTEC platforms are notoriously expensive. Traditional OTEC was rumoured to require at least 100 MW to be cost effective.
Our NEW-OTEC platform is a simple and self-explanatory string of complementary innovations which are free from many of the traditional problems associated with OTEC. We can massively reduce the size of the plant, whilst retaining a cost-effective product.
