About   Ocean   Thermal   Energy   Corporation
OTE   is   a   Lancaster,   Pennsylvania-based   Company   that   designs   and develops  
deep-water  hydro thermal   clean-energy   systems   which include   producing   fossil
fuel   free   electricity   through   Ocean   Thermal Energy   Conversion   (OTEC)   and   environmentally   friendly   cooling though   Seawater   Air   Conditioning   (SWAC).  
An   important   part   of   the technology   is   the   production   of   large   amounts   of   water   for  
drinking, aquaculture,   and   agriculture.

OTE’s   technology   is   best   suited   to   tropical   and   subtropical   regions   of the   world   where  
about   3   billion   people   live.   It   utilizes   the   natural temperature   differential   in   oceans  
to   generate   base-load,   24/7, clean,   non-polluting   electricity,   as   well   as   alternative,  
energy-efficient cooling   systems   and   fresh   water,   the   latter   of   which   is   essential  
for   the entire   world,   particularly   developing   communities.   Since   the   1970s, OTEC   and  
SWAC   systems   have   been   successfully   demonstrated   and operating   in   several  
locations   around   the   world.
