The Renewable Energy field is continuing to grow each day, with new methods and new technology developments making it a more viable way of energy creation than ever before. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, or OTEC, is one of the new technologies being used to generate electricity for the grid. By using a refrigeration cycle and the temperature difference from deep sea water and surface sea water, a turbine is spun to generate electricity. With this newer technology, variations within the current system as well as different geographical locations can play a part in its distribution and use across the world.
