    Hi,

    Happy New Year !

    I guess one of the key research is -ocean thermal energy conversion- .

    There is a concept; called the -Minto wheel-

    http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/MintoWheel/

    .

    .

    This is a heat engine that works with very low temperature difference.  I thought about a design that would give

    propulsion for a boat using the temperature difference of seawater. Surface water is warmer than deep.

    .

    .

    The Mithbusters built one that did not work well.  Another person built a small one that works well.

    I built a 4ft diameter wheel that works.  There is a post from a person on youtube: israelift = that is a large wheel

    and it works well.   Most of these things are on youtube.

     

    I would like to mention that this is a heat engine.

    It converts heat energy to mechanical movement.

    This is not an unconventional energy device.

    The conventional laws of thermodynamics are fully enforced.

    .

    .

    Sincerely;

    ps: Thank you for your help Ken.
