The objective of this paper is to perform a preliminary assessment of the available wave energy for green energy source around Indonesia seas. The computations have been conducted by using the wave data collected during 35 years period from 1980 to 2014 from European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts. The result indicated that location situated in the south of Java Sea has the most promising location for wave power potential with the highest energy resource available in the month of January to December. The yearly mean wave power is maximum at the Java sea can reach 22 kW/m. The result indicated that the wave energy have the potentiality to contribute in the Indonesian energy demand.
