The prospect of ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) system in Malaysia was realized in 2008 by survey carried out in South China sea. Since then various stake holders were sensitize about numerous benefit of renewable energy. The author used the temperature/ depth profile obtained during that survey in 2008 to calculate the net power for Sabah trough using Lockheed Martin proposed model for estimation of OTEC potential worldwide.  Their Model developed comprises critical assumptions and account for major contributing and loss factors to electrical power system. The MATLAB was used for the study;the net power obtained was 133.8162MWe.

Keywords: renewable energy, ocean thermal energy conversion, closed cycle system and net power
