Tidal energy is one of the best predictable and reliable source of renewable energy. Therefore, this paper aims to map extractable tidal energy, and to determine potential locations to generate electricity from tidal power along the coastline of Sabah and Sarawak states of Malaysia. The data was obtained from Sarawak Marine Department, and analyzed by using ArcGIS version 10.3. There are two potential locations, namely Tawau in Sabah, and Pending in Sarawak, where 67.0kW and 115.4kW of optimum power generated were obtained respectively.
