Caribbean Energy Forum (CREF 2013)


Next week, I will be attending the CREF in Aruba to discuss energy efficiency and clean&distributed power.

In the Caribbean, electricity can rocket above 300 USD / MWh (typically x3 to 4 compared to Europe).

Subject for discussions related with Organic Rankine Cycle Technology :

– Adding +5% to diesel power plant, by transforming the extra heat at the chimney and cooling into electricity;

– Low temperature geothermal power in the Caraïbes;

– Small distributed power unit using green waste and biomass;

– Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, with Ammonia turbine and heat source at 28°C (surface water) and cold source from 10 to 5°C (1000m depth).
