3rd National Workshop on Ocean Energy

 17 May 2017

Legal Framework for Ocean Thermal Energy-Driven Development in Malaysia

The 3rd National Workshop on Ocean Energy covering “Prospects of Ocean Energy including OTEC development in Malaysia: Way Forward for Ocean Energy Law” was hosted by UTM OTEC at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

1

The series of workshops on ocean energy is an ongoing effort by UTM OTEC on research and development on ocean energy generally and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) specifically. OTEC is gaining ground in generating sustainable based-load electricity by converting the heat embedded in the deep seas into electrical power using the significant temperature differentials in the deep waters of the tropics. OTEC could also generate cold deep seawater that can be harnessed for growing temperate crops, developing high value marine culture, and producing deep sea mineral water.
