The Ocean Option

    Research output: NRELMarketing


    The various DOE programs in Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion are illustrated in this brochure. Wave and current energy sources are mentioned. Energy from the oceans can begin to provide electric power for U.S. islands in the 1980s, and for the U.S. Gulf Coast in the 1990s. The Department of Energy's "ocean energy option" foresees the development of safe, clean, competitively priced power from a virtually unlimited source.
