Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that can produce electricity by using the temperature difference between deep cold ocean water and warm tropical surface waters. OTEC plants pump large quantities of deep cold seawater and surface seawater to run a power cycle and produce electricity. The Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir also known as cold desert has a vast potential to produce 111 giga watts (GWS) of solar power. The above diagram shows amount of insolation received by different regions. Barren land, clear sky and greater insolation makes it an ideal location for solar energy projects.
