Scouring the tropics for thermal energy

At Bruce Dorminey writes about the promises of harnessing the century-old proposition of using Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) as a source of energy.

“The world’s largest untapped source of solar energy doesn’t lie on the vast sands of the Sahara or even atop the high chaparral of the desert Southwest. Instead, it stretches across at least 23 million square miles of earth’s tropical oceans; the uppermost layers of which make a prime natural source of thermal energy.”
