Seventy percent of all sunlight received by the Earth falls on the oceans. The larger part of this sunlight is captured as heat in the upper layers. Therefore, the oceans are by far the biggest solar collectors on Earth. By utilizing a mere fraction of this energy, we have a limitless, renewable, baseload source with enough power to cover our global energy need.
Ocean Thermal Energy, with its low-cost, baseload generation capabilities, its vast potential and the possibility to generate electricity, cooling, drinking water and fuels, is destined to become one of the leading energy sources. The naturally existing thermocline and the ocean’s thermohaline circulation create an energy system big enough to power the globe!
Ocean Thermal Energy presents the opportunity for energy independence in an environmentally friendly manner, enabling new sources of economic growth. It is an investment for now and for the future, an investment that will yield profit quickly. Ocean Thermal Energy can today easily reach grid parity in many regions of the world. Bluerise is at the forefront of Ocean Thermal Energy development.
