EcoDesigner: Climatic zones of South Africa & Energy Analysis

Date: Wednesday, January 23, 2013

A new feature of ArchiCAD 16 Energy Evaluation is  the ability to choose the Climatic Data for your project location. Previously you were limited to a single  source for this data, namely: “Download from StruSoft Climate Server”. This option is still there but now you can also choose: “Use ASHRAE IWEC, TMY, WTEC2 file”. I received the current 6 “official” climatic zone weather files that have the file extension EPW from Agrément South Africa. You can download these files from my Dropbox link –Click here! You can also get your own free Dropbox account by joining and installing Dropbox by - clicking here
