Recovery Act - Conceptual Design and Modeling of an Offshore 100MW Mist Lift Open Cycle OTEC Plant to Determine Overall Economic Benefits, Risks,and R&D Requirements
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) can supply massive quantities of renewable and clean energy but costs are too high for the continental U.S. market. This project will evaluate whether a unique Mist Lift Open Cycle process in a large OTEC plant can significantly lower OTEC costs.
