The International OTEC Symposia have taken place each year since 2013, each time hosted by a separate organizing committee in each host country. The Ocean Thermal Energy Association (OTEA) is pleased to guide the overall organization of these events going forward. This website is under construction, but we hope to provide archives for the past OTEC Symposia soon.
