Renewable energy is the current trend of energy sourcing. Numerous scientists,inventors,and engineers are working hard to harness renewable energy. The application of renewable energy is very wide; it can be as small as lighting an LED bulb or as large as generating the electricity of a town or even a country. Wind energy plays an important role in the context of electricity generation. Wind energy is highly dependent on the wind speed at a wind site. Wind prediction is necessary for a wind energy assessment of a potential wind farm. In this study, the wind energy assessment is based on wind prediction using the Mycielski algorithm and K-means clustering in Kudat, Malaysia. The predicted results are analysed using Weibull analysis to obtain the most probable wind speed. From the results of this study, K-means clustering is more accurate in prediction when compared with the Mycielski algorithm. The most probable wind in Kudat is sufficient to operate the wind turbines.
