Abstract: The Typical Meteorological Years (TMY) for Hong Kong is generated by using the weather data recorded by the Royal Observatory of Hong Kong from year 1979 to 1988. Data used in the analysis included the hourly dry bulb temperature, dew point temperature, wind velocity, total global solar radiation, etc. The monthly Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF) of those selected data was compared with the long term values of the CDF for each month of a year. The persistence structure was studied by Finkelstein-Schafer (FS) statistics. The deviations of CDF of the mean dry bulb temperature and total global solar radiation was examined. The weather data of the chosen typical year is compiled in TMY format. With this TMY, the building energy loads in a higher education institute in Hong Kong were simulated using the energy simulation program BLAST. The results were compared with the building energy loads of all the years from 1979 to 1988.
