Energy Island Plan Includes OTEC, Wind, Currents

Posting here has dropped off this week thanks to a pre-election holiday in Maui’s Kaanapali, where the trade winds have been strong and undoubtedly are turning the nearby wind turbines impressively. We’ve restricted ourselves to the occasional renewable energy item to come through on a weak wireless connection.

Here’s one on “sustainable modular islands” that includes a video presentation showing how ocean current power, wind power and ocean thermal energy conversion technologies might be integrated in floating energy islands. The concept will be presented at an energy conference in Shanghai in a couple weeks.
