    Abstract: This research reports wind energy potential evaluation of two locations in the north east Nigeria (Bauchi and Borno). The evaluation is based on Weibull and Rayleigh models using 17 years mean monthly wind speed data covering the period (1990-2006). The result shows that Rayleigh is best fit model that describes the wind speed data at 10 m height. ... Show More
