Bluerise can empower small islands to start the path towards energy independence by taking advantage of their most abundant resource, the Ocean. Related deep sea water technologies in the form of a Deep Seawater Ecopark promote sustainable economic development and job creation by attracting new industries that can utilize the unique resource of deep seawater with added value of competitive energy and utility prices.
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) provides a highly predictable energy source free of significant fluctuations, available day or night. OTEC can assist in balancing other intermittent renewable sources.
An Deep Seawater Ecopark can provide fresh water production (by low cost thermal desalination), agriculture products, fish farming and industrial cooling among other possibilities. Local research, innovation and entrepreneurship on clean technologies based on the Ocean are at the core of Bluerise’s Deep Seawater Ecopark concepts.
