The Danish Design Reference Year (DRY) was last updated in 1995 by Hans Lund at DTU. This consisted of a full year of typical meteorological data based on meteorological data from the period 1975–1989. It is well known that the climate of Denmark has since changed. Hence this updated DRY data set has been made with the support of the EUDP programme funded by the Danish Energy Agency.
The purpose was – and still is – to produce a data set from meteorological data, designed specifically to be used as input data for computer simulations of technical dimensioning, i.e. in the energy and construction sector.
The full DRY technical report (Wang et al. 2013) and the data set is available for download at www.dmi.dk/laer-om/generelt/dmi-publikationer/tekniske-rapporter/
