Abstract

This paper discusses the feasibility of employing seawater-based initiatives to save fossil fuel energy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions in one of venues - "Green Olympic Blue Ice (GOBI) rink"- of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Seawater will be employed to freeze the ice rink and provide air-conditioning. Seawater-based conditioning systems will save more than 60% of the required energy and 84% of the energy costs; further CO2 emissions will be reduced by approximately 69%. Geo-ocean thermal energy conversion can be used to supply the required electric power, and zero carbon emissions can also be realized by creating underwater seaweed forests. © 2012 by International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers.
