Prospects for Ocean Energy in Malaysia

Yaakob, Omar and Tengku Ab Rashid, Tengku Mohd Ariff and Abdul Mukti, Mohamad Afifi (2006) Prospects for Ocean Energy in Malaysia. International Conference on Energy and Environment 2006 (ICEE 2006) .



The ocean one of the most perpetual sources of energy and has already been exploited on a small scale. Some technologies are being developed to exploit the large potential of this energy source. This paper will focus on ocean energy as an alternative source in Malaysia. The current development of various devices to extract the ocean energy will be reviewed. Although technologies are currently being developed in the areas of tidal power, wave power, thermal energy gradient, current energy, winds and salinity gradient, not all of these are suitable for Malaysian sea areas. This paper surveys the available Malaysian oceanographic data and identifies the potential sources of energy.
