This session will begin with a presentation on the dire state of oceanic health and the importance of approaches such as regenerative marine aquaculture, cultivation and preservation of mangroves and reefs, and ocean-based renewable energy. This will be followed by a presentation on the market for battery storage and ancillary services in the Philippines; an energy transition “to-do” list for Indonesia; and a panel discussion covering “low-hanging fruit” approaches to achieving sustainable development goals and NDCs; and the potential for a packaged microgrid approach in the Philippines.

If we don't save the ocean, we won't save the planet. We know how to save the ocean, but we are at more than 13 years behind schedule with respect to investing in ocean health. Governments with Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs) need to prioritize SDG 14 above all other SDGs and lead development of projects which will crowd in private sector investment.
Introducing enhancements in the treatment in the energy market of battery and other energy storage systems (ESS) is geared towards maintaining the benefits of integrating renewable energy resources in the spot market, which include reduced market prices and an ample level of energy supply.
Sit tight and wait for technology that cannot be 100% implemented for some decades down the road while we let the current levels of pollution continue, slowly but gradually abated ~ Or ~ use the natural resources and technologies we have ~effectively~ right now while working on cleaner technologies for the future and reduce pollution greatly within a decade.
