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. The United States Code is meant to be an organized, logical compilation of the laws passed by Congress. At its top level, it divides the world of legislation into fifty topically-organized Titles, and each Title is further subdivided into any number of logical subtopics. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) makes use of the temperature differences between the deep cold and relatively warmer surface waters of the ocean to generate a constant, clean source of electricity. This constancy differs from the output of renewable resources such as wind and wave energy that sometimes produce intermittent electricity. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Karen Anne Finney University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, N1G 2W1, Canada Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that employs the natural temperature difference between the surface and the depths of the ocean. First introduced in , OTEC has been described as an effective and renewable energy Size: KB.

There is a need to state jurisdictional authority over these new ac-tivities' and to formulate government policies concerning regula-tion.' Congress has passed the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act of (the Act)3 to facilitate commercial development of this.
