Abstract

Obtaining site-specific high accuracy historical and near-future weather data have always been a challenging task for building simulation community to do either building performance analysis or predictive building control. Although ‘typical’ (such as TRY/TMY) or ‘extreme’ (such as DSY/DRY/EWF) weather files are made available, they often do not fit the purpose of studies. This paper demonstrates a novel approach to obtain real-time current and forecast weather in EPW format for building simulation using the free online toolchain. It is the first attempt to create weather API (Application programming interface) designed explicitly for building simulation community.
