      Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion. The ocean thermal energy can be harnessed by means of a thermodynamic cycle, which uses the temperature gradient between the cold deep waters and the warm surface waters. It is estimated that, the amount of solar energy absorbed annually by the oceans is equivalent to   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.

      less civil engineering work and less environmental impact at the site. A great deal of att ention was drawn to marine and tidal currents as a possible source of energy during the oil crisis in the. Abstract: This presentation summarizes the environmental considerations for siting OTEC-1, the Early Ocean Testing Platform. As you may know, the concept of Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is not new to the alternative energy source arena, d'Arsonval first proposed the use of the thermal gradient between warm surface and deep cold ocean waters in the late nineteenth century.
