US DOE funds OTEC development, finally
OTECDoug Carlson points out that the US Department of Energy will be financing water based energy projects with $7million. Most of the projects are either hydropower or wave power projects, but Lockheed Martin Corporation is doing a validation of “manufacturing techniques for coldwater pipes critical to OTEC in order to help create a more cost-effective OTEC system”. University of Hawaii has been given money to “facilitate the development and implementation of commercial wave energy systems and to assist the private sector in moving ocean thermal energy conversion systems beyond proof-of-concept to pre-commercialization, long-term testing”.
