07 June 2018
Pasig Room 14/F Lopez Bldg, Meralco Ortigas Center,
Pasig City, Philippines


The Southeast Asian (SEA) region has an ambitious target of tripling its renewable energy power generation by 2025. Marine renewable energy, as an emerging energy source, has not been as widely known as other renewable technologies such as hydro, geothermal, solar and wind.

Marine renewable energy is a classification of renewable energies whose sources originate from the marine environment. It includes tidal energy, wave energy, salinity gradient and ocean thermal energy conversion. Each kind has its own characteristics and require specific devices to harness the different types of energy. It is well suited to the SEA region due to the proximity of many countries to large bodies of ocean.


To equip the participants with adequate knowledge about ocean renewable energy, specifically tidal and wave energy. At the end of the training workshop, the participants are expected to:
