Abstract: 

OTEC plants are highly visible and likely will attract wide interest

  • Effects may be “regionally” measurable, but of “national” or even “global” interest
  • Information is limited
    • Effects are not well quantified
    • Observations are limited
    • Effect predictions may be hypothetical and abstract until pilot studies can be monitored
  • Effects will be site- and configuration-specific
    • Ocean or shore plant location
    • Discharge location and depth
