How can the ocean contribute renewable energy to the African ‘Blue Economy’, bringing opportunities to millions of Africans and reducing or replacing carbon emissions, and which strategic actions can help it reach this potential?

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
