One of the most important resources of a nation is energy. The significance of energy definitely cannot be overemphasized as it is immensely utilized in our everyday activities as a very germane requirement for survival and robust lifestyle. The amount of energy availability and its usage in a country measures the level of industrialization. Several devices including machines, electronics, household electrical appliances and other domestic equipment and machines, industrial production and processing machines, streetlights for lighting, our vehicles all require energy in various form be it solar, hydro-electric, biogas, gasoline, diesel and the likes to function properly to optimum capacity. However, owing to the stupendous hike in fuel price, increase in electricity charges and the desire to limit the use of fossil fuels and reduce carbon emissions, there have been several human efforts on the pursuit for alternate means of power. This study is aimed at analyzing the range of renewable energy potentials in Nigeria, and how they can ultimately be used for national development
