    The answer to the question “Could the Bahamas be the ideal location for an Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion facility?” is “Yes.” The nearby deep cold water and the warm surface water around Grand Bahama Island is ideal for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion technology, and there is plenty of unused land space on this fairly large island for such a purpose. The government of the Bahams is positively predisposed to new, safe and non-polluting economically and technically feasible projects such as OTEC. In a phrase it can be summed up as: “OTEC not OPEC.”
