Ocean renewable energy in the Indonesian Seas

About 80% of the global energy consumption is supplied by fossil fuels. In the face of the climate change, sea level rise and the depletion of oil resources much effort is done to use ocean renewable energy. The National Energy Council (NEC) of Indonesia intends to strengthen the role of ocean renewable energy in the national energy mix and supports investigations on the potentials of wave and tidal current energy.
