EnergyCAP created the website to help building owners and managers understand how weather affects the heating and cooling energy use of their building.
WeatherDataDepot.com specializes in on-demand display of heating and cooling degree day comparisons by accessing meteorologist-approved historical daily mean temperature information from AccuWeather.com, then summing the daily data to produce monthly heating degree day and cooling degree day totals.
This information is very helpful to individuals who are tracking their organization’s heating or cooling energy use from year to year, and who want to take weather differences into account.
The new WeatherDataDepot.com includes:
A big advantage of WeatherDataDepot.com over the government’s NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) database is that the meteorologist-approved AccuWeather data has no gaps that can skew data and interpretation. Computer models fill in data voids created when NOAA reporting sites have equipment glitches.
Users of WeatherDataDepot.com can select base and comparison years as early as 1993, temperature units (Fahrenheit or Celsius), and even a building Balance Point Temperature (the traditional 65F balance point used by NOAA generally is too high and skews statistical weather normalizations for modern buildings).
WeatherDataDepot.com is part of the family of energy management products produced by EnergyCAP, Inc.
