The dataset ‘Typical meteorological year weather files in EnergyPlus (.epw) format’ is comprised of 80 text files in .epw format. Each file contains one year of climate data in hourly intervals. The data is in a format suitable for building simulations using software such as EnergyPlus, ESP-r and IESVE and is based on weather files which were developed for the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) residential building simulation tools. The typical meteorological year is drawn from 26 years of historical weather data from 1990 to 2015 using the method described by the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA).
