[EnergyPlus_Support] More Weather Data Available ...and comparison of EnergyPlus with DOE-2/BLAST

New Weather Data for Central America and Cuba

We are happy to announce the availability of new EnergyPlus-format weather
data for 37 locations in Central America (Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala,
Honduras, and Nicaragua) and Cuba.  The data are from the Solar and Wind
Energy Resource Assessment project, funded by the United National
Environment Programme, Global Environment Facility. (More information on
SWERA is available on their web site: http://swera.unep.net/ ).  Thanks to
SWERA for making these data available.

This brings the total number of weather files available to 665 with more
than 280 in the US, 55 in Canada, and 320 around the world.  All the new
data are available on the international weather page of the EnergyPlus web
site:  http://www.energyplus.gov/cfm/weatherdata_int.cfm

If you know of other typical weather data that could be shared with
EnergyPlus and ESP-r users, please contact us directly.  We have another
set of 60+ files created for Italy and a few others throughout the world
that we plan to post as soon as time allows.

Comparison of EnergyPlus with DOE-2 and BLAST

A recently published paper compares the capabilities of EnergyPlus with
those of DOE-2.1E and BLAST.  The paper was presented at the IBPSA-USA
SimBuild 2004 conference in early August and is available here:
