6th International OTEC Symposium

The International OTEC Symposium is the world’s largest international conference on Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC). Since the first conference in Hawaii in 2013, it has been held annually in Korea, Malaysia, The Netherlands, and France. Two days of unique and interactive sessions provides the framework for networking and collaboration among the wide variety of international speakers and participants.
