- We were asked by the King to evaluate OTEC prospects for the island. Luis and I showed up for our first meeting with his Eminence, and were served orange juice. He was not yet at the table, but Luis drank his juice because he was really thirsty. Then King Taufaahau Tupou IV (who passed away in 2006) walked in, sat and said we can now drink our orange juice. He was 6'5" tall and weighed 400 pounds.
- He hosted a lunch where we were served two 3-5 pound lobsters. I'm allergic to crustaceans but managed to get through the meal.
- I guess we could not recommend an OTEC program, for nothing is happening today there with this option.
- However, wave power has always been attractive. On the flight to Tonga, I talked to a colleague from the Florida Solar Energy Center, who said he was asked to recommend a wave power development program for the country (they belong to the United Nations). While we were there he went for a dive, and never returned. In 1988 there was a ground-braking (I meant ground-breaking, but, as nothing has happened, perhaps that term is the operative one) for a Norwegian-sponsored effort, and I saw a 2011 report expressing interest from New Zealand. No ocean energy electricity today is being generated on Tonga.
