This paper present the potential sites around coastal area of Malaysia for electricity generation by harnessing tidal energy. As the electricity demand increase over the year and generating electricity by using fossil fuel caused the increase number in CO2 emission, thus renewable energy become one of the solution for alternating energy for electricity. There are a few of identified locations along Malaysia’s coastal area that have potential for tidal energy implementation. The approaching for harnessing tidal energy are by using tidal barrage approach which are consist three types of mode generation ebb-mode, flood-mode and double-mode. The output generations are calculated by identify the size of basin at identified locations. For suitable location identification is by using geographical map and bathymetry map. At the end, the identified location that suitable for harnessing tidal energy are Pulau Langkawi, Pulau Pinang, Lumut, Miri, Kota Kinabalu, Kudat, Lahad Datu, Tawau and Labuan.
