The ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals specifies design conditions for 6400+ locations.  This zip file has "macro defined" sets for each in EnergyPlus V7.1 (and later) format.

Several files are included:

2013_DesignDayCityCountry.csv   - this is the key to countries, cities and the key used for the epmacro defines to obtain the data
2013_Annual_DesignDay_AllRegions.zip  - this is a zip of the following zips:
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_1_Africa.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 1: Africa
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_2_Asia.zip- design day definitions for WMO Region 2: Asia
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_3_South_America.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 3: South America
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_4_North_And_Central_America.zip  - design day definitions for WMO Region 4: North and Central America
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_5_Southwest_Pacific.zip  - design day definitions for WMO Region 5: Southwest Pacific
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_6_Europe.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 6: Europe
2013_Annual_DesignDay_Region_7_Antarctica.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 7: Antarctica
