In the last decades, renewable energies have replaced fossil fuels for the economic development of different countries such as European Union countries and still a big challenge for non-developed countries economically. However, some of the European Union members do not benefit from using renewable energies such as wind energy, and one of these countries is Hungary. The objective of this research is to assess the spatial potential of wind energy and the direction of the prevailing wind in Hungary using satellite image datasets, Hot-spot method for zoning areas appropriate for installing wind farm turbines in Hungary. The results showed that western and northwestern Hungary are the best places to settle wind turbines, and the prevailing wind direction north-north-western and the best-fitted turbine model type is 3,000 kW Vestas V90-3.0, that about 494,000 kWh hours of electricity annually can be generated by installing a wind turbine unit in the area of ​​33.5% reliability. The highest energy is extracted in April, May and June, and the lowest energy production is in December and January. Nevertheless, Hungary is not a top beneficiary country of wind potential. therefore, it is necessary to exploit the renewable energy potential by fitting the small and medium-sized turbines to produce energy.
