AWIS Energy Weather Services
AWIS has the solutions you need for managing and predicting energy loads,
verifying energy use, and settling energy futures contracts. We serve
the electric, natural gas, and propane markets.
The concept we follow is... keep it simple, accurate, and reliable
We're here to make your job easier by letting us worry about the
weather and manage the details of getting you the information you need.
Simple...We encourage our clients to use simple comma delimited (.CSV) files for
their weather inputs. CSV files are concise, easily import to spreadsheets
like Excel® and other applications, and can even be manipulated with any text
editor. You don't need complex formats that will require you to do extra work just to see
the actual numbers. For those that do want specially formated products, we can do that too. If you
are looking for XML feeds, we can also set that up to meet your needs.
Accurate... We take accuracy very seriously. Our data is extensively quality
controlled, even down to checking hourly values. We monitor your
weather data so closely that we often see and report problems with
failing temperature sensors and clogged rain gages before the Federal
agencies responsible for the data see it! We can check if problems have
already been reported, and if not, we often report it. That's above and beyond!
Reliable... We take great professional pride in producing reliable weather forecasts.
We won't sell you something that meteorological science doesn't support. Our forecasts are
not a repeat of the government models. We utilize our own proprietary models and techniques
to produce a forecast we can stand behind.
AWIS has a wide range of weather observation and forecast products to
satisfy your operational needs. We can supply climatological normals,
historical weather data from the beginning of station records, previous day data, and even the current hour
data. Observed data are available in daily and hourly formats. Weather forecasts are made
out to 15 days and are available in daily and
In addition to the usual weather parameters like temperature, relative humidity, wind speeds,
etc., we derive many other parameters such as wet bulb temperature, wind chill, solar
radiation, hours of sunshine, and others. Need something special calculated or tabulated?
We can do just about anything! This applies to both observed weather as well as forecasts.
Data and forecasts are normally provided for individual locations, but we can also organize
information by ZIPCode, DMA's, or other geographic designations.
Our data and forecasts can be easily incorporated into your own locally written software, spreadsheets,
databases and by most commercial energy software packages including the GasDay™ packages from
Marquette University. Delivery is available by
FTP, HTTP, e-mail, XML, and other protocols.
