Climatic zones of South Africa & Energy Analysis using ArchiCAD 16

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
