The Degree Days.net API is a state-of-the-art commercial system that enables other software to access large quantities of custom-specified degree-day data.
Degree Days.net Desktop is only possible because of the powerful API and the intensive number-crunching that it performs to churn out large volumes of degree days, fast.
It's Degree Days.net for power users! With a user-friendly interface to our powerful commercial API, Degree Days.net Desktop makes it easy to assemble data from lots of locations or in lots of base temperatures.
It's fast, it's reliable, and it will work for a handful of locations or for hundreds.
You don't even need to specify the weather station IDs - just specify the zip/postal codes or longitude/latitude positions of the locations you want data for, and leave our system to figure out the best weather stations to use.
“The desktop app is incredibly useful for me as I need to pull multiple kinds of data for more than 40 properties at once. A process that used to take me as much as an hour is now done in seconds. Thank you for this program!”
Laura Troise, HEI Hotels & Resorts
“It is well worth the posted monthly rate to have all this data at my fingertips, and it is allowing us to enhance our energy performance reporting greatly.”
Matt Roman, Visteon Corporation
And that's not all:
If you've already got a Degree Days.net API account, you can enter your API access keys into the desktop app and start assembling data immediately. If not, you can sign up for a new API account here. The better the API account you go for, the more data you and your team will be able to assemble using the desktop app. Sign up is fully automated, and your API account will be created immediately. You just need a credit card.
API account or not, you're welcome to try out the desktop app to take a look and to enter locations and configure the data you want from each. You could also try fetching data through the test API account... It will only let you fetch data from the Cape Cod area, but it should be enough to check that everything works as it's supposed to.
Clicking the button below should launch the desktop app immediately:
It requires Java 6 or later to run, but most computers have that installed by default. If yours hasn't, the button above won't work, and you should download Java for free from www.java.com. Then try the button above once more.
If it's still not working, it's probably just your firewall blocking the download. If you're not sure what that means or what to do about it, it's probably best to get your IT staff to take a quick look. They should be able to remedy any obstacles and install the software very easily.
We hope you like the desktop app, and please do feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or problems, or if you'd like to let us know what you think of it (we'd love to hear!).
