Blue Innovation using OTEC and DOWA from Asia-Pacific
An Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) and Deep Sea Water Application (DOWA) have been strongly focused again on the important one solution for expected for saving the earth and Sustainable Development Golds (SDGs). In recent years, technology and business have been internationally advanced to a new stage.
The OTEC system produces power from ocean thermal energy. The typical advantage of the OTEC is the stable power generation rather than other renewables such as solar PVs and windmills. OTEC could be produced the by-products and job creations using the discharged deep seawater. The OTEC facility at Kumejima, in Japan, was launched in 2013 and is continuously operating using the advanced technology, as the international forefront.
This presentation demonstrated the feasibility of OTEC and DOWS in the pursuit of the SDGs in Asia-Pacific.
