Oceans contain vast renewable energy potential – theoretically equivalent to more than double the world's current electricity demand. Nascent ocean energy technologies could cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power generation and help to ensure a sustainable, climate-safe energy future.

The Ministry of Earth Sciences, (MoES) will set up an Ocean thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) power plant at a cost of `100 crore in Lakshadweep in Kaviratti island.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of developing 'blue economy' to complement India's economic trajectory is getting onto the drawing board, with the development of an indigenous technology to t

For the first time in four decades, the world's gross domestic product (GDP) rose in 2014 without a coinciding rise in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to the Renewables 2015 Global Status Report.

Wave energy conversion and ocean thermal energy conversion are two potentially significant sources of renewable energy that are available to help ADB's developing member countries reduce their dependence on fossil-fuel based energy generation and bolster energy security.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a fairly new technology which uses the ocean’s natural thermal gradient to produce energy to drive a powerproducing cycle. Considering the fact that the ocean’s layers of water have different temperatures, an OTEC system can produce a significant amount of power. The oceans are thus a vast renewable resource, with the potential to help us produce billions of watts of electric power.

In May 2011, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) presented its report on potential of renewable energy (RE) which emphasizes

Both Countries Have Announced Oil Exploration Plans In Other’s Waters
New Delhi: The oceans are the new theatre of India-China competition, but one with possible security implications.

In this article, an attempt is made to answer the question: Can renewable energy sources eventually supply India’s electricity needs in the future? The estimates made here indicate that even with a frugal per capita electricity need of 2000 kWh/annum and a stabilized population of 1700 million by 2070, India would need to generate 3400 TWh/yr. As opposed to this, a systematic analysis of the information available on all the renewable energy sources indicates that the total potential is only around 1229 TWh/yr. It is concluded that in the future as fossil fuels are exhausted, renewable
