There are scenarios about the future of climate especially in accordance to global warming. I'm wondering where I could find corresponding epw files for various locations/cities.

The best tool I know is Meteonorm (https://www.meteonorm.com/), although you´d have to get a license. Probably worth if you are planning to work on several locations.

Thank you for sharing. Is there any FREE option for students. I only need data for ONE location.

They have all the options on their website, but I guess it´d still be costly if you only need one location.

One source is WeatherShift from Arup.

Thanks for sharing. I'm a student, and this is really expensive. (AMY FORMAT First Scenario € 240,00 Each Additional Scenario € 170,00 ... ) Is there any FREE option?

WeatherShift does not provide all locations, as for instance for Portugal in my case.

I use a small and simple software (CCWeatherGen) that you can find here, as well as all related manuals/tutorials: http://www.energy.soton.ac.uk/ccweath...

Hope that it may be usefull to you.

thanks for sharing. This page (http://www.energy.soton.ac.uk/ccweath...) refers to this (http://www.energy.soton.ac.uk/files/2...) and then to this ( http://www.ipcc-data.org/sres/hadcm3_...). The latter seems to be a dead end (error 404). Is there any alternative way?

I used CCWeatherGen for free, and it was helpful. Thank you
