    PHILIPPINES WANTS 170,000 MW OF OCEAN ENERGY

    22 sites eyed for ocean energy
    Amy R. Remo, 11 November 2010 (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

    "The Department of Energy has identified 22 prospective sites that can be developed by interested investors to produce the much needed additional power capacity using ocean energy resources.

    "The DOE said it was promoting Philippine ocean resources, which could generate as much as 170,000 megawatts, following the commercialization of ocean energy in other countries. Tapping the ocean as an energy resource involves emerging technologies that use the power of temperature difference, waves and tides to create energy."

    "These specified areas, the government agency added, hold ocean thermal and tidal energy potential…[T]he DOE identified 14 ocean thermal energy potential sites…[and] eight potential ocean tidal energy sites…[A] study undertaken by the Oceanographic Co. of Norway showed that ocean wave energy has an enormous potential capacity [at other sites]…"

    "…[T]he development of ocean energy is capital extensive as references have indicated that a 100-MW project would require a $250-million investment…

    "US firm Deep Ocean Power Philippines Inc. is currently conducting studies in at least 36 sites covering 21,000 hectares…for possible ocean power sources…[I]ts efforts were expected to be focused primarily on Occidental Mindoro and Antique…"
