Date of Publication :7th January 2017

Abstract: Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion is one of the major sources to produce electricity by using ocean water. However, no proper implementation is being done due to various drawbacks like setup cost, expensive maintenance and also the failure of cold water pipe that is held in the ocean at a depth of 1000m. This paper deals with the experimentation and analysis of various materials for the CWP in OTEC.
