Researchers of the Sustainable Energy Research Group have developed a tool to generate world-wide climate change weather files for use with standard building performance simulation programs. The tool (CCWorldWeatherGen) is free of charge and can be downloaded from the SERG website.
The climate change world weather file generator (CCWorldWeatherGen) allows you to generate climate change weather files for world-wide locations ready for use in building performance simulation programs. It uses uses Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Third Assessment Report model summary data of the HadCM3 A2 experiment ensemble which is available from the IPCC Data Distribution Centre (IPCC DDC). The tool is Microsoft Excel based and transforms ‘present-day’ EPW weather files into climate change EPW or TMY2 weather files which are compatible with the majority of building performance simulation programs.
It is highly recommended to read the user manual before using the tool.
