Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) power plants use thermal energy found in the ocean of tropical regions to drive turbines that create electricity. The OTEC power can be used to produce energy carriers such as Hydrogen, stored in HYDRNOL (Organic Liquid Storage), which can be shipped to areas not close to OTEC resources. This could be fuel for thermal power plants, as well as internal combustion vehicles, such as gas turbines and reciprocating engines. The ability to store and transport hydrogen within a liquid carrier at standard (room) temperature and atmospheric pressure provides many advantages over current hydrogen storage methods. The need for large, heavy storage tanks is eliminated. Major changes in the fueling infrastructure of the world are avoided. The risk for explosion is minimized since the hydrogen is stored within a molecule and not in its elemental form. Furthermore, it is less flammable than gasoline or diesel. Also, HYDRANOL is cost effective when compared to traditional (fossil) fuels. So, the “black” oil fields can be replaced with “blue” Hydrogen fields in the near future.
