This paper describes a new data set appropriate for empirical validation of whole-building energy simulation software. The data has been created using artificial and natural climate configurations in the empirically characterized ETNA (Essais Thermiques en climat Naturel et Artificiel) test cells of an electric utility in France. This data set includes parametric variations based on the Building Energy Simulation Test and Diagnostic Method (BESTEST) comparative test methodology developed at a national laboratory in the United States
