The Weather Out There

The Weather Out There

All energy models depend on accurate weather data.  So in a changing climate, what is accurate?  This Colorado-centric discussion covers:

  • Measured data sets such as TMY and AMY data
  • Computer simulated weather data
  • Interpreting weather data - confidence versus skepticism
  • State of weather software tools and future climate and weather data
  • Colorado Front Range weather and design day trends
