Abstract

This documentary explores the ways in which the ocean can be an alternative source of renewable energy. Topics reviewed include thermal, tidal, and wave energy technologies. The environmental consequences that these devices can have on various forms of sea life are also considered. Similarly, it analyzes the economic demand of such innovations. Specific technologies discussed in this documentary include the Pelamis and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC). The ocean is an underutilized energy resource that merits research to develop its immense potential. This documentary provides an unbiased narrative within the discussion of the ocean's renewable energy as well as how we can advance this resource.
