New Simulation Climate Data Available for Africa, South Asia, and Southwest Pacific from Climate.OneBuilding.Org

1 post / 0 new is pleased to announce the availability of new
climate data (TMYx) for more than *3200 locations in Africa, South Asia,
Southwest Pacific, and a few countries in Europe and West Asia*. The TMYx
are derived from the ISD (US NOAA's Integrated Surface Database) with
hourly data through 2017 using the TMY2/ISO ISO 15927-4:2005 methodologies.
There may be two TMYxs for a location, e.g., for Cairo Intl AP:
EGY_QH_Cairo.Intl.AP.623660_TMYx, and EGY_QH_Cairo.Intl.AP.623660_TMYx. In
those cases, there's a TMY for the entire period of record and a second TMY
for the most recent 15 years (2003-2017). Not all locations have recent

Adding these data to the earlier (April 2018) set for the Americas, now provides climate TMYx data at no cost for more
than *4,200 locations *and another 3,000 from other data sources worldwide.
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 on Climate.OneBuilding.Org 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).
