What is OTEC. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between cooler deep and warmer shallow or surface seawaters to run a heat engine and produce useful work, usually in the form of electricity.

Yes, it is true that. transform the thermal energy into electricity. This is referred to as OTEC for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion.

At first, OTEC plantships providing electricity, via submarine power cables, to shore stations could be implemented. This would be followed, in 20 to 30.

Actual ocean thermal energy conversion efficiency at any location is likely to be around 3 %. When OTEC is implemented in 5 % of the earth surface area (which is 7% of the ocean covered area,less than 15 % of the tropical ocean area), the 3% conversion efficiency will be sufficient to provide energy at % of the total solar energy level.

Ocean thermal energy conversion systems convert the energy available in the temperature gradient of the warm surface‐water layers and the deep, cold ocean depths of approximately ‐m. OTEC is not like wind power or solar power (which are intermittent), because the technology can operate on a basis.

Oceans act as incredibly large solar energy collectors, absorbing about 80% of the sun’s energy. This means that every day, the oceans on our planet absorb solar energy equivalent to billion barrels of oil, and if we could convert % of this energy into electricity.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Introduction. Ocean thermal energy conversion, or OTEC, uses seawater to turn solar energy into electricity. It relies on the ocean’s thermal gradient - the temperature decline from the sun-warmed waters on the surface to the cold waters found at great depths. What is OTEC Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a marine renewable energy technology that harnesses the solar energy absorbed by the oceans to generate electric power.

The sun’s heat warms the surface water a lot more than the deep ocean water, which creates the ocean’s naturally available temperature gradient, or thermal energy. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion is a process using the heat energy that is stored in the ocean. The oceans collect a huge amount of the world’s heat energy.

This constancy differs from the output of renewable resources such as wind and wave energy that sometimes produce intermittent electricity. Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune, B Tech Mechanical Engineering 14 CONCLUSION Ocean thermal energy conversion is a potential source of renewable energy that creates no emissions i.e.

it is fuel free. It has a low environmental impact, can supply pure water for both drinking and agriculture purposes. Can supply refrigeration and cooling. The ocean is a huge storehouse of energy—the sun heats the surface, wind creates waves, and tidal forces exerted by the sun and the moon create tidal fluxes.

Most technologies to tap this huge resource are still in the developmental stages. Ocean Energy Thermal Energy (heat): Two major ocean thermal technologies are of interest in [ ].
