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. Key players in the OTEC industry, and energy markets, finance, and government representatives from all over the world will have the opportunity to share the latest in this accelerating industry.
In addition, we offer sponsors the opportunity to exhibit projects, companies, and products at this year's beautiful venue at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology. We will also offer an optional tour to Kumejima, home to Okinawa’s OTEC demonstration facility, which has been in operation since 2013, and other deep seawater related industries.
The 6th International OTEC Symposium will be held on September 26-27, 2018. The optional tour to the Okinawa OTEC Demonstration Facility and Deep Seawater Industries on Kumejima, Okinawa will be on September 28.
