I'm working with the Prometheus future weather files and would like to present some summary statistics such as heating degree days, cooling degree days, average wind speeds, climate type, etc. as you can find in the .stat files that accompany a lot of EPWs.

The problem is that the Prometheus files don't have .stat files with them. Is there a tool available to generate them? Or another tool to generate key climate statistics from the EPW file?

You can use the Preprocessor WeatherConverter (EnergyPlusV8-5-0\PreProcessWeatherConverter) that comes with EnergyPlus.

Load the file, select as output format "Statistics Report on Input File"
