Does anyone know of any third-party sources of EPW files for use with ResStock and PAT other than WhiteBox Technologies? http://weather.whiteboxtechnologies.com/

EPW MAP (https://www.ladybug.tools/epwmap/) is great but not quite up to date with all the http://climate.onebuilding.org files that are out there. If you go to climate.onebuilding.org, each of the WMO regions have a kml file that will show you to the available files as well as enable you to download.

Dr Yi Zhang also has a site: https://app.ensims.com/epwmap.html

http://climate.onebuilding.org is great because it has more recent weather than historic TMYs, i.e. TMYx.2004-2018.

A good reference for a variety of sources of weather data is the Weather Data for Simulation page which includes climate.onebuilding.org. Many of the sources are referenced on the EPW Map page that Luis Lara mentioned.

For locations in Italy you can build your EPW from row data you can find here (they are the basis of the recently renovated italian regulation climatic dataset):

Here another free set for locations in Italy, from an European Project:

[updated answer]

Here's a link on how to generate EPW file for any location from 1980 onward. This is currently going through beta-testing so if you'd like to give it a try would be greatly appreciated.
