Summary: The goal of this project was to develop an interactive and easy-to-use web-based software application for generating synthetic weather data that can be used to perform a climate stress test. As part of this process, a software library was developed for running the weather generator, which is also designed to be used independently from the web application. Finally, in addition to the weather generator interface and software library, the web application includes a graphical user interface for creating and configuring simulation and optimization models in order to demonstrate the future direction of this web application.
