Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) - Net Power (Annual Average)

This shapefile represents annual average net power estimates. The OTEC Plant model predicts the net power production at a specific location, given three inputs: surface temperature (°C), depth (m), and difference between warm surface water temperature and cold deep sea water temperature (ΔT in °C) at the given depth, relative to the surface temperature. In order to normalize values for the purposes of visualization of the OTEC resource around the world, a baseline plant design was used. The baseline 100MW Net Power design has been optimized for conditions indicative of the Hawai‘i OTEC resource. As such, power output as described by the results of this study is not optimized for local conditions (except in parts of Hawai’i), but does provide guidance for site selection. Given the nominal plant power output of 100MW based on a competitive cost of electricity (Hawai’i), any output exceeding this value represents significant potential. A large area of predicted 100 MW+ net power exists in many locations around the world, especially in areas with high energy costs.
