OTEC Foundation has released the video recordings of the presentations delivered during a two-day OTEC Symposium held in Amsterdam late in October 2016.
The fourth OTEC Symposium, co-organized by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Bluerise and the OTEC Foundation, offered two days of interactive sessions, and hosted a wide variety of speakers including key players in the OTEC industry, experts in energy markets, NGO’s and finance experts from all over the world.
The first day of the symposium was held at the Science Center at TU Delft, with the focus on technology and current projects.
The second day was held as an official side event of the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference at the RAI convention center in Amsterdam, where the focus was put on the market, certification and the future of the sector.
The symposium signaled ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) technology readiness and demonstrated good progress in market implementation, while the industry showed a strong ambition to have a first commercial OTEC plant in the water before 2020.
The fifth OTEC Symposium will be held in in Réunion island in October 2017.
