Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation EcoVillage Team Headed to US Virgin Islands

Team to Advance the OTEC EcoVillage Project with Local Stakeholders

LANCASTER, PA / ACCESSWIRE / July 16, 2018 / Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (OTCQB: CPWR) ("OTE" or "the Company"), a project developer for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) renewable energy, Seawater Cooling (SWAC), and water desalinization plants, today announced that the OTEC EcoVillage Team will be in the US Virgin Islands this week to advance the planning process for the project with local stakeholders and professional advisors.

The team consists of Dr. Steve Oney, Chief Science Advisor; Heru Ofori-Atta, Vice President of Caribbean Operations; Gil Lyons, Jr., Co-Founder and Director of the Sky Institute for the Future; and OTEC EcoVillages Advisory Board Member and Architect Steve Mouzon, a Director of the Sky Institute for the Future and Partner in Studio Sky.

Jeremy P. Feakins, Chairman and CEO of Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation, commented: "Our mission is to inspire sustainable living and awareness by providing proven alternatives to ecologically destructive fossil-fuel powered electrical and water systems by building, owning, and operating OTEC renewable energy systems and water for drinking, agriculture, and economic development in our markets. To prove OTEC as a commercially viable renewable energy source, we have started the process to build the first of what will be a global network of OTEC-powered Ecovillages and Affordable Communities in developing countries. We are focused on the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean. We call our first sustainable community the OTEC EcoVillage."

About OTEC and SWAC

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a game-changing technology that leverages the temperature difference in the ocean between cold deep water and warm surface water in the tropics and subtropics to generate unlimited energy without the use of fossil fuels. It boasts a competitive advantage over alternative sources of electricity production regarding accessibility, predictability, affordability, and emissions. Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) technology produces air conditioning without the use of chemical agents. Acting alone, SWAC can reduce electricity usage by up to 90% when compared to traditional air conditioning systems. Both technologies can be configured to produce fresh water for drinking, agriculture, and economic development. Supporting the efforts for more sustainable living in developing nations around the world, OTE's OTEC and SWAC technologies drastically reduce the output of carbon emissions and produce renewable base-load (24/7/365) energy without the use of fossil fuels. This translates to slowing down climate change and cleaning up our atmosphere for a healthier planet for all.

About the OTEC EcoVillage

OTE is in the advanced planning stages for a global network of carbon-neutral, high-quality eco-resorts consisting of sustainable homes, condominiums, retail spaces, and EcoHotel. Use of fossil-fuels is not allowed at the OTEC EcoVillage. The first EcoVillage is targeted for the US Virgin Islands where OTE has received regulatory approval for its 100% fossil-fuel free Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) system which will supply both the electricity and the water for the EcoVillage community. EcoVillage will be the world's first community powered entirely without the use of fossil fuels and using the natural resources of the ocean to deliver base-load electricity and water 24/7/365 days a year. EcoVillage will be a model for the future, living in harmony with nature supplying affordable clean power and water for communities, and exemplifying best practices in ecologically responsible developments.

About the Sky Institute for the Future
