Download a zip file with the binary Japanese weather files, Japan-Weather.zip. These weather files were made from EnergyPlus EPW files using the eQ_WthProc conversion program, found on the DOE2.com website.


The location of the Japanese weather data will depend on your computer's operating system.


Weather File Location: C:\Program Files\LBNL\RESFEN5\Weather-Japan

Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Vista:

Weather File Location: C:\Users\Public\LBNL\RESFEN5\Weather-Japan

When you have the weather data in the correct place, you can open a RESFEN database and make new locations that reference this weather data in the Location Library.


In the RESFEN6 directory (for Windows 7 it would be C:\Users\Public\LBNL\RESFEN6\ and for Windows XP it would be C:\Program Files\LBNL\RESFEN6), make a subdirectory called Weather-Japan, and unzip this file into that directory. This weather data is not included in the Installation, but can be added to the program through the Location Library.

Here is a list of the cities in this zip file:
