A New Approach to OTEC Resource Estimation: OGCM’s as a Modeling Tool

Various attempts have been made in the past to estimate the global ocean thermal energy potential with also a significant span in ranges. The last IPCC reports states a recoverable OTEC potential of 108-324 EJ per year while the IIASA ended up with a value of 30,000 EJ per year [Avery, W. H., and G. L. Dugger. “Contribution of ocean thermal energy conversion to world energy needs.” International Journal of Ambient Energy 1.3 (1980): 177-190.].… Continue reading
