Using cold, deep ocean water as a source for cooling is a relatively straight forward process of pumping up cold water and using a heat exchanger to chill a fresh water system that is distributed to buildings to cool air for air conditioning.  The electricity hungry process of using chilling systems to cool the water is far less efficient. By using readily available, naturally occuring deep ocean water the energy savings is 70 to 80 percent.  Conventional air conditioning is the largest single electrical energy consumer in Hawaii’s hotels, offices and residential condos.
