French president talks OTEC for Reunion Island

According to L’Agence Régionale de l’Energie Réunion (ARER), the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, in a recent visit to the Reunion Island, set out a plan to make Reunion carbondioxide neutral by 2030. “Accompanied by M. Boissier, the corporate executive of the first European military shipbuilder DCNS, the French President appointed Reunion Island as the place of demonstration and experimentation for the OTEC.” This project is supposedly co-financed by the French government.
