Video: Oceans as the Powerplant of the Future

Ocean and Tidal Energy Innovation

In an age where the demand for energy rises by the day, we’re exploring better ways to generate power. The oceans that cover our planet may hold the key. We’re looking to harness the forces of the tides, waves and temperature for clean, reliable, renewable electricity. While resources may be limited, the power of human ingenuity to create a better energy future is not.

Watch this video to find out more about Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC). OTEC generates electricity by leveraging the temperature difference between warm surface water and deep cold water.

For more information about how Lockheed Martin is developing technologies to harness the power of the ocean tides, read about the AR1500 tidal turbine used to support the MeyGen project – the world’s largest tidal stream project under development in Scotland’s Pentland Firth.
