Abstract

By the end of the 21st Century, hydrogen fuel as energy carrier will make up over 50 per cent of the world energy supply; oil, biomass, waste-heat, and coal.In Malaysia hydrogen fuel could now be generated therein would be at least 50,000 MW, more than double of the currently installed capacity of electrical power in Peninsular Malaysia.Other spin-offs of this energy conversion would be production of both freshwater and mineral water, extraction of metals including lithium from sea-water, culture of high value fish, seaweeds, and other temperate agro-produce using chilled-water from the deep sea.The Government of Malaysia would be forthcoming in introducing the required policy framework and the necessary legal-institutional arrangements, including the expected policy framework and the necessary legal-institutional arrangements, including the expected royalty payment from OTEC enterprises, the establishment of Ocean Thermal Energy Nasional (OTENAS), the like of PETRONAS,a new law relating to ocean thermal development vis-a-vis the Exclusive Economic Zone Act of 1984.Such framework and arrangements would provide the necessary conditions for capital investment up to US$ 500 billion or more in marine renewable energy development in Malaysia, or elsewhere for that matter.
