    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
