Paper presented at the Proceedings of 2013 2nd International Conference on Advances in Electrical Engineering, ICAEE 2013, 374-378. doi:10.1109/ICAEE.2013.6750366
Bangladesh is among the worst victims of the global energy crisis, but it is also in one of the most advantageous positions to make transition towards the renewable energy path. In order to solve the power crisis problem by introducing innovative renewable technologies, this paper proposes and analyses the factors behind OTEC technology establishment in Bangladesh. The main objective of this paper is to propose and present the need to set up this new cleaner and efficient source of renewable energy by analyzing its suitability on geographical position. The site of Bangladesh is naturally gifted area to establish Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) as Bangladesh lies just beneath the tropic of cancer and on the shore of the Bay of Bengal, the two vital elements: constant sunlight and large littoral areas needed for OTEC can easily be found in this region.
