  • OTEC
  • OTEC operates as cyclic heat engines, receiving thermal energy through heat transfer from surface of the sea water warmed by the sun and converting that into usable electric energy. (storify.com)
  • Even though OTEC consumes, from what it looks, an unlimited free resource energy, poor thermodynamic performance reduces the economic feasibility of an OTEC facility. (storify.com)
  • The Natural Energy Laboratory maintains a demonstration garden near its OTEC plant with more than 100 fruits and vegetables, many of which would not normally survive in Hawaii. (storify.com)
  • Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (OTE) is a renewable energy and clean technology company, and a world leader in Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC), which uses water temperature difference to generate clean baseload electricity, without the use of fossil fuels, and Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC). (idealist.org)
  • LANCASTER, PA / ACCESSWIRE / March 15, 2018 / Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation ( CPWR ) ("OTE" or "the Company"), a project developer for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plants that generate renewable energy without the use of fossil fuels, is today providing an update on how technological developments in the past 20 years have paved the way for OTEC's and Seawater Air Conditioning's (SWAC) commercialization. (yahoo.com)
  • The first closed-cycle, land-based pilot OTEC plant was built in 1981 on the island of Nauru, followed by a second facility on the island of Hawaii in 1993, both facilities producing enough energy to power several hundred houses per year. (yahoo.com)
  • Since then, leading firms in the industry have implemented significant technological advances, demonstrating that OTEC is on its way to revolutionizing energy production worldwide, allowing reliable and affordable energy production on a large scale. (yahoo.com)
  • More than anything else, the acceptance of alternative energy sources by the populations of the world has established OTEC as a commercially viable and economically sustainable solution. (yahoo.com)
  • Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation is playing a major role in the advance of the OTEC industry by designing, receiving approval, and establishing projects in the Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands, and with a major U.S. Defense contractor. (yahoo.com)
  • OTE believes that OTEC technology is now truly ready for commercialization and OTE's business model and technology provide an ideal basis to establish the Company as the industry leader for the implementation of renewable energy based on OTEC technology. (yahoo.com)
  • OTEC plants generate renewable energy by "harvesting" the heat in ocean water and using that heat to warm liquids with a low boiling point (such as ammonia) so that vapor is produced. (yahoo.com)
  • Supporting the efforts for more sustainable living in developing nations around the world, OTE's OTEC and SWAC technologies drastically reduce the output of carbon emissions and produce renewable energy without the use of fossil fuels. (yahoo.com)
  • OTE is a Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based company that designs and develops deep-water hydrothermal clean-energy systems which produce fossil-fuel free electricity through Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC), and environmentally friendly cooling through Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) without the use of fossil fuels.

  • BTEC
  • BTEC continues its educational webinar series with a session on November 6, 2013 that delves into the applications of biomass thermal technologies and the U.S. Green Building Program's LEED program. (altenergymag.com)
  • Consumption
  • It can be observed that there is rising demand for space cooling, and it has the highest share of energy consumption in the building sector. (diva-portal.org)
  • Demand
  • On Nantucket Island, the local utility proposes to include 2.5 MW of TES integrated with residential air conditioning along with other energy-reducing measures to accommodate projected increased demand, which will put off the need to build a new undersea transmission line and save an estimated $2.8 million over the next seven years. (energycenter.org)
  • Therefore the demand for finding energy efficient, renewable and cost effective solution is ever increasing. (diva-portal.org)
  • thermoelectric
  • Contrary to conventional thermoelectric effects, it also enables the recovery of thermal energy in magnetic insulators in combination with a thin metallic layer. (solarthermalmagazine.com)
  • This paper presents a new TES unit designed to integrate with a thermoelectric for energy harvesting application in small, cm-scale applications. (asme.org)
  • absorption
  • 1) high flux energy of concentrated solar beam absorption by formation of the non-equilibrium Frenkel defect and (2) the O 2 gas formation from the O 2− in the Frenkel defect even in air atmosphere. (springer.com)
  • Temperature and heat flux data are compared to show the thermal absorption capability and operating average thermal conductivities of the TES units. (asme.org)
  • environmental
  • An Aston University academic has proposed a new process to decompose waste desalination brine using solar energy, neutralising ocean acidity and reducing damaging environmental impacts. (phys.org)
  • Green building strategies are a fixture of modern architecture and design as developers and architects look to reduce environmental impacts and energy use. (altenergymag.com)
  • Thermal energy is a leading topic of discussion in energy conservation and environmental fields. (asme.org)
  • thermodynamic
  • A flowing fluid or a moving solid, for example, possesses energy that can be converted to work in some mechanical device, such as a windmill or a waterwheel, but the same fluid or solid in a thermodynamic equilibrium state having the same energy (as thermal energy) can do no work unless it is combined with another substance at a different temperature, as in a heat engine.
