Otecnews.org brings the latest news, project developments, and events around Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) and related technologies such as Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC), Deep Ocean Water (DOW), use, etc.
The Ocean Thermal Energy Association has accepted management of otecnews.org and will act as caretaker of the great amount of effort and work from founder Thomas Bjelkeman and follow on work by the OTEC Foundation and other volunteers. All the historical posts are still here, and together, the OTEA will work to improve and modernize the site, create new content, and work to bring all international efforts on ocean thermal and related technologies to the wider world.
Otecnews.org was founded in late 2001 by Thomas Bjelkeman. Thomas successfully developed and managed the website and soon it became the main source for OTEC news. Late 2011, a team of dedicated OTEC parties, including Thomas Bjelkeman, Remi Blokker and Berend Jan Kleute, decided to continue and update the website in a collaborative effort which became the OTEC Foundation.
From 2021 the Ocean Thermal Energy Association (OTEA) has accepted all operations and will work to improve and expand the site’s utility for all users.
