ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues relating to renewable ocean energy technologies. It reports on the United States' plan to build ocean thermal energy conversion facilities for a U.S. Naval base on the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia, Hawaii's Big Island and several sites in the Caribbean. The article highlights some progress being made on the state level and in the private sector in the continental United States.
