Hawaii OTEC

Doug Carlsson at Hawaii Energy Options was the first of several people to highlight that the Hawaii governor announced that Taiwan Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and the Lockheed Martin Corporation is going to build a 10 MW OTEC plant on Hawaii. What is interesting is that they are not announcing where, although one may presume it is at NELHA. Also it is going to be interesting to see how this announcement affects the smaller OTEC development companies, such as OCEES and Sea Solar Power, who have been holding the flame alive whilst OTEC was out in the oil induced cold.
Edit: An unconfirmed report mentions Oahu as the location for the OTEC plant.
