Title of the Special Issue

Research on the marine renewable energy and ocean environment of the Maritime Silk Road.

 

Description of the Special Issue

The “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” (hereinafter referred as Maritime Silk Road) is a plan for building “a community of shared future for mankind”, which will bring an important opportunities to the common prosperity of human society. However, challenges often coexist with opportunities. The overall electricity supply capacity in countries (regions) along the Maritime Silk Road is weak. There are many households without electricity, let alone electricity supply on industrial development. In this case, the electricity-supply predicament in the Maritime Silk Road become more obvious, seriously restricting the efficient constructions of the Maritime Silk Road and the maritime key points. How to break the electricity-supply dilemma has become the core of the efficient construction of the Maritime Silk Road.

Against a background of an environmental and resources crisis, the advantages of renewable, non-pollution, wide distribution and huge storage make the marine renewable energy (wave energy, offshore wind energy, etc.) to be a particular area of interest. The full development of marine renewable energy will make positive contribution to be conducive to alleviating the resource crisis, protecting the marine ecology, improving the quality of life of the residents on the remote island, carrying out tourism and sightseeing, enhancing the living ability of remote islands and so on.  The basic principle is ‘resource evaluation and planning ahead’.

In addition, the Maritime Silk Road involves a wide range and long distances. The challenging natural environment also greatly increases the difficulty of constructing the Maritime Silk Road. For example, a storm surge in the Bay of Bengal in 1970 caused more than 300,000 deaths. Obviously, understanding the characteristics of the marine environment is a prerequisite for the safe and efficient construction of the Maritime Silk Road. However, relatively weak basic research and scarce marine data seriously restrict the full implementation of the Maritime Silk Road initiative and urgently need to be addressed.

Previous researches have made great contribution to the marine renewable energy evaluation and ocean environment analysis of global oceans. However, the researches on the Maritime Silk Road are relative scarce. There are still many difficulties in energy classification, energy climatic characteristics, short-term forecast, long-term projection of energy, database construction of marine renewable energy resources, marine disaster monitoring and early warning, etc., which seriously districted the marine development and relative actives. The purpose of this special issue is to explore the basic theory and technologies of the above difficulties, to provide reference for power plant site location, daily operation, long-term planning and environmental security for marine renewable energy utilization, ocean engineering, and so on, thus to contribute to the sustainable development of human society.
