The largest tidal power plant in the world

Indonesia will build the largest tidal power plant in the world in the straits of Larantuka at the Island of Flores. The power plant is designed to provide electricity to more than 100,000 residents in that area.

This Larantuka power plant project aligns with Indonesia’s commitment to increase the share of renewable energy in the total energy supply to 25% by 2025. It also commits to reduce the emission of CO2 by 300 million tonnes by 2030.

The tapping of ocean energy, consisting of wave and tidal energy to produce clean and cheaper power will grow significantly.  According to Market Research Future, the annual growth rate of the global wave and tidal market is expected to be more than 17% till 2023.
