Typical Meteorological Year weather files for building energy modelling

This dataset contains 83 text files in .epw format. The files contain hourly weather data for a typical meteorological year in 83 Australian locations. The typical meteorological year weather dataset is based on historical weather data drawn from the years 1990 to 2015. The dataset is in the EnergyPlus (.epw) format and can be used by building simulation software such as EnergyPlus, ESP-r, and IESVE.

The dataset ‘Typical meteorological year weather files in .epw format’ is comprised of 83 text files in a single zip file. Each .epw file contains one year of weather data in hourly intervals for one of 83 Australian locations. The data is in a format suitable for building simulations using software such as EnergyPlus, ESP-r and IESVE. The dataset is based on weather files which were developed for the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) residential building simulation tools. The typical meteorological year weather dataset is based on historical weather data drawn from the years 1990 to 2015 using the method described by the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA).

Further details about this dataset are available in the Typical meteorological year weather files for building energy modelling User Guide.
