Announcing availability of new CWEC 2016 weather data and updated design condition data on

1 post / 0 new is pleased to announce the availability of a new
weather data set for Canada -- CWEC 2016. Developed by Environment Canada
(EC), the CWEC 2016 are derived from up to 30 years of data through 2014.
Because EC was able to use satellite solar radiation, this data set
includes many new locations not available before -- where stations don't
record cloud cover.

Today, we updated all the weather data on our web site to include the new
2017 ASHRAE design conditions (2017 Fundamentals). Every location on the
web site has design conditions. With today's addition of the CWEC 2016, now provides free data for more than 3,000
locations worldwide.

In addition, we have expanded the STAT (statistics) reported on each
weather file to include: UTCI (universal thermal climate index), additional
wind reporting, psychometric chart data, and sunshine/daylight averages.

Each .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).
