Otecnews.org brings the latest news, project developments, and events around Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) and related subjects, such as ocean engineering, mariculture, power infrastructure, environmental impact and global climate change.

The purpose of the OTEC foundation with the OTEC news website is to centralize and organize the current scattered information on OTEC, educate the public and raise global awareness by providing factual OTEC information and news, and to make sure that OTEC development is accelerated by bringing all the different parties together. Building a support base among politicians, government administrators, media pundits and industry experts is crucial for OTEC to cross the gap to full commercial deployment.

Otecnews.org was founded in late 2001 by Thomas Bjelkeman. Thomas successfully developed and managed the website and soon it became the main source for OTEC news. Late 2011, a team of dedicated OTEC parties, including Thomas Bjelkeman, decided to continue and update the website in a collaborative effort which became the OTEC foundation.
