Abstract: Usually, commerically used hourly weather forecasts of national weather institutes are implemented for predictive control stragegies. Energy demand and energy loads are calculated by utilizing adequate models with predicted air temperatures. However, on the internet, numeruous providers offer freely available weather forecasts. Mostly forecasts of maximum and minimum outside air temperatures are available for five to nine days in advance. Many applications in building services do however require hourly or quarter-hourly data. This paper describes a method for generating weather data of any resolution for freely available weather forecasts issued by online services. Ice storage and load prediction of a building are citied as examples of predictive control strategies using webbased weather forecasts.
