Question

Which of the following statement is correct with respect to ocean thermal energy?


  1. It produces a lot of pollution.

  2. It can destroy life in the ocean.

  3. None of these

  4. It uses the temperature difference in the ocean to generate energy.


Solution

The correct option is D

It uses the temperature difference in the ocean to generate energy.


Ocean thermal energy (OTE) is a non-conventional form of energy. The energy from the sun heats the surface water of the ocean. 

The Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) technologies utilize this temperature difference between the warm surface water of the oceans and cold water at a depth of approximately 2000 meters to drive power plants for electricity.


It does not produce any kind of pollution and is renewable in nature and neither does it cause any harm to life in the ocean.
