Hybrid applications

The OTEC plant is designed primarily to generate electricity. As such is could provide significant souce of power to a small island community where the conditions for OTEC exploitation exist. Such communities will also often benefit from fresh water production from an open cycle or hybrid OTEC facility. This combination will prove important for the future of OTEC.

There is a further resource available from an OTEC plant, a supply of nutrient-rich and bacteria-free deep ocean water. This can be used for forms of aquiculture as well as to provide cooling. When combined with electricity and drinking water production, aquiculture could make OTEC more attractive economically.
