Abstract

This paper puts in perspective the progress achieved in the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion concept and  makes a plea for such a power plant for Mauritius. The potential exists. Sites have been identified and an  economic analysis for a 2 MW plant is proposed. It becomes much more attractive in the higher power range.

Keywords: energy, power plant, closed and open cycles, surface temperature, ocean depth, efficiency.
