University of Illinois Campus Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study - Long-Term Meteorological Data


This submission includes meteorological data recorded by National Weather Service at University of Illinois Willard Airport, Savoy IL for period 1972 to 2018. This data is for use in parameterizing the demand and life-cycle assessments associated with the project, and provides information about energy loads for the buildings being included in the DDU applications. This includes how energy demand fluctuates with seasonal changes in climate, which is used to model expected demand for the DDU system.

*Note: All times are reported in local standard time.
