Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) makes use of the temperature differences between the deep cold and relatively warmer surface waters of the ocean to generate a constant, clean source of electricity.

This constancy differs from the output of renewable resources such as wind and wave energy that sometimes produce intermittent electricity. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the ocean thermal gradient between cooler deep and warmer shallow or surface seawaters to run a heat engine and produce useful work, usually in the form of can operate with a very high capacity factor and so can operate in base load mode.
