New Simulation Climate Data for Europe Available

Share this Post:

Climate.OneBuilding.org is pleased to announce the availability of new climate data (TMYx) for more than 1,900 locations for the following 25 countries in Europe: Aland Islands, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Svalbard and Jan Mayen, Sweden, Switzerland.

 

TMYx are typical meteorological year data derived from hourly weather data through 2017 in the ISD (US NOAA's Integrated Surface Database) using the TMY2/ISO 15927-4:2005 methodologies. It should be considered that not all locations have recent data.

 

Adding these data to the earlier (April/October/November 2018 and February 2019) sets for the Americas, Africa, Asia, SW Pacific, and Antarctica, Climate.OneBuilding.org now provides climate TMYx data at no cost for more than 9,850 locations and another 3,200 from other data sources worldwide. This TMYx data set completes all worldwide locations except for the USA and Canada – which are next! All data have been through extensive quality checking to identify and correct data errors and out of normal range values where appropriate.

 

Each climate location .zip contains: EPW (EnergyPlus weather format), CLM (ESP-r weather format), and WEA (Daysim weather format) along with DDY (ASHRAE design conditions in EnergyPlus format), RAIN (hourly precipitation in mm, where available), and STAT (expanded EnergyPlus weather statistics).
