Tidal Energy is one the most prominent and promising renewable energy sources due to its consistency in electricity generation. Malaysia, being a country with its vast resources is persistently affecting its research towards the transition of using conventional petroleum-based power to renewable energy production. This review paper will aim to study the potential of implementing tidal energy harvesting system in Malaysia by analyzing the gathered raw data of Malaysian region and comparing it with existing tidal harnessing system that has already been implemented in Norway, a country that has a similar geographical, climatic and weather conditions as Malaysia. This review paper will give a broad knowledge on the tidal energy harnessing system and the means to implement it in Malaysia.
