About OTEC and SWAC
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a game-changing technology that leverages the temperature difference in the ocean between cold deep water and warm surface water in the tropics and subtropics to generate unlimited energy without the use of fossil fuels. It boasts a competitive advantage over alternative sources of electricity production regarding accessibility, predictability, affordability, and emissions. Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) technology produces air conditioning without the use of chemical agents. Acting alone, SWAC can reduce electricity usage by up to 90% when compared to traditional air conditioning systems. Both technologies can be configured to produce fresh water for drinking, agriculture, and economic development. Supporting the efforts for more sustainable living in developing nations around the world, OTE’s OTEC and SWAC technologies drastically reduce the output of carbon emissions and produce renewable base-load (24/7/365) energy without the use of fossil fuels. This translates to slowing down climate change and cleaning up our atmosphere for a healthier planet for all.
