Climate.OneBuilding.org <http://climate.onebuilding.org> is pleased to
announce the availability of new climate data (TMYx) -- including our 10,000
th location -- 839 locations in Canada. These new data include 2018 (TMYx
based on 2004-2018 data) and NSRDB PSM V3 (https://nsrdb.nrel.gov/) solar
data for Canada.

TMYx are derived from the ISD (US NOAA's Integrated Surface Database) with
hourly data through 2018 using the TMY2/ISO ISO 15927-4:2005 methodologies.
Of course, any naming mistakes in any of the countries are ours. More
details on the numbers of locations by country are at the end of this

Adding these data to the earlier (April/October/November 2018 and
February/March 2019) sets for the rest of the world, Climate.OneBuilding.org
now provides climate TMYx data at no cost for more than 10,600 locations
and another 3,200 from other data sources worldwide. A TMYx data set for
the United States is in progress. 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
<http://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).
