Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) data is used extensively in building energy simulations and solar energy analysis. TMY data for New Zealand, however, is relatively limited and no such data existed for Hamilton. Ten years of hourly meteorological data was analysed, and a TMY was developed. Simulations using the TMY data were conducted to determine the performance of a solar pool-heating system. It was found that the TMY was able to predict the annual performance of this system to within 2% of the long-term mean. It is intended that this TMY could be used to perform simulations on building energy use and solar heating systems in Hamilton.
