ASHRAE data and it works very well!
The data that was on the web page was the IWEC data published by ASHRAE
recently (not sure if date is 2001 or 2002). It's main problem
(which you can find somewhere in these archives) was that the non-solar
data was "off" by the difference to the location in GMT
hours. (i.e. if the location was GMT - 6, the non-solar (such as
dry-bulb temperatures) would be off by that amount -- resulting in highs
for the dry-bulb occuring perhaps in the middle of the night and
the lows in the middle of the day.
For continuously running systems, this would not be a big change in
energy consumption but, of course, for residential runs or load
calculations or places with setback operations, there could be a
When we noticed this deficiency, the data was pulled from the EnergyPlus
website AND ASHRAE was notified and... the final result is that the
new data will be regenerated and is close to final acceptance (more
quality checks this time around!)

If you're talking about the design conditions here -- these have not
changed. And these are "available" in the Design
conditions file that ships with EnergyPlus. A more legible reading
of those (using EnergyPlus design day format) will be available with or
