New Building Reference Year and Future Climate Dataset for 564 Canadian

We are pleased to announce that more than 18,000 weather data files for
Canadian locations created by National Research Council Canada (
https://www.canada.ca/en/national-research-council.html) are now available
from Climate.OneBuilding.org.  These include:

·         Typical Meteorological Years using the TMY/ISO 15927-4:2005

·         Temperature reference years (typical, extreme cold, extreme warm)
based on future climate models

Data are provided for 1991-2021, and seven future periods coinciding with
0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, and 3.5ºC of global warming, representing
2003–2033, 2014–2044, 2024–2054, 2034–2064, 2042–2072, 2051–2081, and
2064–2094, respectively. NRCC also produced moisture reference years for
hygrothermal applications, which are not included in the
Climate.OneBuilding dataset.  More information about the creation of the
files is provide in Gaur and Lacasse 2022 (
