Description:

The Making of Ersatz Future Meteorological Years: a collaboration with the CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere Flagship (Trevor Lee, Exemplary Energy)

Trevor is a consultant on energy conservation in the built environment through his multi-disciplinary firm Exemplary Energy. He is the lead author of the Australian Solar Radiation Data Handbook (ASRDH, 2006) and team leader for developing the expanded Australian Climate Data Bank (ACDB, 2016), the potential basis of all building and energy system simulation programs in current use in Australia. He led a project for the then Australian Greenhouse Office and again in 2010 for its successor to project the impact on the built environment of “inevitable climate change” and this work flowed into the Ersatz Future Meteorological Years (EFMYs) data sets for 2 scenarios to 2030 and four scenarios to 2050.

Studying Climate Change Impacts on Buildings Using Future Weather (Dr. Lisa Guann, University of Technology Sydney)
Dr Lisa Guan is an experienced researcher in the architecture, building, and construction industry. She has so far published over 60 papers in various high impact journals, book chapters and conference proceedings. Her research includes investigating the effects of global warming on building design, low carbon design and green building innovation, low energy HVAC systems (e.g. solar cooling, hybrid evaporative cooling), building energy efficiency and life cycle assessment, and building thermal comfort and IAQ.

She will share her experience in preparing future weather data to study the impact of climate change on buildings.

Methods of Generating Future Weather Files (Benjamin Brannon, Arup)
Benjamin is a mechanical engineer at Arup, concentrating on energy modelling, digital environments, energy code compliance, and building physics.

He will discuss and compare different methods of generating future weather files, including the WeatherShift tool, which uses data from global climate change modelling to produce EPW weather files adjusted for changing climate conditions.
