Last month, I traveled to Dallas to give a keynote presentation to Lockheed Martin on environmental issues. At the time, I encouraged company officials to begin exploring opportunities in the “clean tech” area in an effort to diversify its business away from the defense/aerospace business. Although I’m sure my recommendation had nothing to do with the decision, I’m was glad to see that Lockheed Martin is now busy designing a new Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion device which could provide America with a vast supply of cheap, clean and sustainable energy. It could even make desalination technology more a viable technology by addressing the high energy cost part of the equation.
