Only those with the ability to modify the existing EnergyPlus weather files have the opportunity to investigate the potential effect that climate change might have on the future energy consumption of a building. Adding the ability to adjust weather files within EnergyPlus would open up new avenues of study to the entire EnergyPlus user base.

    Solution: Add…
