This project will help to:
- Increase renewable energies and zero emission energy uses in APEC economies;
- Encourage regional energy efficiencies and maximize the potential development of
clean energy technology;
- Build the energy basis at reasonable costs.
The prospects of this sector of power generation industry lie in the decentralization of energy supply, module structures giving the opportunity of building-up power generating units according to the needs on the site, provided that there is a long coastline, objects scattered wide apart, which supply depends on weather conditions. The presence of electrical power supply opportunity, which does not require regular fuel supply, ensures stable living standards directly connected with electrical power supply.
Marine stream energy more powerful, stable and not impacted by most natural disasters (such as earthquakes, tsunami, hurricanes etc.) and having a number of essentially positive features than other alternative or renewable energy resources (such as solar, wind, sea wave and tidal power stations) and deserves more attention on the part of APEC.
Currently, there is not enough data about the localization of the resources and their coincidence with the sites of (their relevance), which requires additional research to determine optimal sites for stream-energy power stations in terms of their geographic, economic and regional relevance.
