The new system, a twist on ocean thermal energy conversion , is considered one of those “disruptive” technologies that could bring about a sea change (sorry, couldn’t resist) in the way ships, robots and other oceangoing equipment power their operations, in addition to providing a steady supply of energy for landlubbers. Hidden Energy in the Ocean According to Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Jim Pearce, ocean thermal conversion (OTEC) systems located in tropical waters could generate up to five terawatts of power without affecting the ambient temperature of the ocean.
