What are the advantages and disadvantages of ocean thermal energy?

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) uses warm surface water to produce steam (using either ammonia or a vacuum) to generate electricity. Cooler deep water then cools the sy (MORE)

What is energy conversion?

  The general answer is that energy conversion is the conversion of one type of energy into another. We use this principle all the time every day. For instance, we use che (MORE)
