    Ocean thermal energy conversion is the hydropower technology of converting the temperature differential between tropical ocean surface and deep waters into electricity. , known as the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act of , which is classified principally to this chapter. For complete classification of this Act to the Code, see Short Title note set out below and Tables. The Merchant Marine Act, , referred to in subsec.

    Shown Here: Conference report filed in Senate (06/19/) (Conference report filed in Senate, S. Rept. ) Energy Security Act - =Title I: Synthetic Fuel= - Declares it to be the purpose of this title to reduce dependence on foreign energy resources by producing synthetic fuel. In August, , the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was given the responsibility, per the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act of (P.L. ), to establish a legal regime that would foster the commercialization of ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) in a manner that protects the marine environment.

    Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act. Promoted the development of ocean thermal energy conversion to minimize dependence on foreign oil, with NOAA having the authority to license OTEC facilities, but low fossil fuel prices resulted in no requests for license applications being filed. Nuclear Waste Policy Act. Energy Security Act, incorporating: U.S. Synthetic Fuels Corporation Act-Biomass Energy and Alcohol Fuels Act-Renewable Energy Resources Act-Solar Energy and Energy Conservation Act-Geothermal Energy Act-Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act: Created Synthetic Fuels Corporation to market fossil fuel alternatives.

A bill to regulate commerce, promote energy self-sufficiency, and protect the environment, by establishing procedures for the location, construction and operation of ocean thermal energy conversion facilities and plantships to produce electricity and energy-intensive products off the coasts of the United States; and to amend the Merchant Marine Act, to make available certain.

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is reviewed briefly. The two types of OTEC system (open and closed) are described and limitations are pointed out. A bibliography of references on OTEC is given for the time period to Entries are arranged alphabetically according to the author's.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act (OTECA) of limits the ownership, construction and operation of offshore ocean thermal energy facilities and plantships to those licensed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Under OTECA, several ederal agencies assist NOAA f in the OTEC licensing process. The U.S. Coast Guard authorizes OTEC facilities with regard to safety, pollution, construction and operations, and impacts to the thermal.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act of - =Title I: Regulation of Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Facilities and Plantships= - Prohibits any person from owning, constructing, or operating an ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) facility and prohibits United States citizens from owning, constructing, or operating an ocean thermal energy conversion plantship without a license issued pursuant to this Act.

Ocean thermal energy conversion act of [an act to regulate commerce, promote energy self-sufficiency, and protect the environment ]. These include synthetic fuels, solar power, and energy derived from the oceans.

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the warm surface layer of sea water — a collec- tor of solar heat — and the colder subsurface layers to power a turbine which generates electricity.

Congress has passed the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act of (the Act) 3 to facilitate commercial development of this method of using stored solar energy in ocean surface waters. H.R. (96th). An act to provide for a research, development, and demonstration program to achieve early technology applications for ocean thermal energy conversion systems, and for other purposes.
