The main purpose of this paper is to exploit and discover the potential of ocean renewable energy at Terengganu coast, Malaysia. Ocean renewable energy is a new alternative to solve the massive energy consumption for now and for the future. This research is very crucial that ocean renewable energy can replace the non-renewable energy which is over excessively used and is going depleted soon. A series of data of Terengganu coast such as current data and wave height were collected and analyzed. It was then compared with the data of the following year and with the future by forecasting the data with certain organization which is Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The mean sea level that is increasing annually also has a great impact that boost the current and significant wave height. Comparison was done between five normally used ocean renewable energies to select the best that suit the current condition in Terengganu coast. It is found out that tidal turbine stands out as the option to be used because it is cost effective and the overall statistics outperformed the other technologies.
