A marine scientist based in academe is urging the Philippines to pour investments into ocean energy resource research and development. Laura David of the University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute (UP-MSI) said that being an archipelago with more than 7,100 islands, the country can harness ocean energy as a clean and renewable source that can greatly contribute to solving the current power supply problem. During a presentation at the recently held 38th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the National Academy of Science & Technology (NAST), David said that waves or tides from the ocean can provide an infinite supply of electricity if local scientists develop the technology.
