Now the time has come for us to think for some other better energy alternatives that are far more better than our coventional sources of energy. These new energy alternatives belongs to renewable power sources which would provide much cleaner energy as compared to the energy delivered by their counterparts i.e conventional energy sources. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion is one of the method which can be considered for giving shape to our thoughts. Actually in Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, the temperature difference between surface and deep sea water is used to generate electricity.
Architect and engineer Dominic Michaelis, his son Alex along with Trevor Cooper Chadwick of Southampton University are developing the concept with plans of putting the theory to the test on an unprecedented scale by building a floating, hexagonal Energy Island that will harness energy from Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion i.e OTEC, as well as from winds, sea currents, waves, and the sun.
