Results from EnergyPlus (using EP-Launch) appear in several possible formats. The most basic are the csv files for the time oriented output and the meter output. These will appear as <filename>.csv and <filename>Meter.csv. These can be quite detailed files (ref: Output:Variable, Output:Meter commands). Other formats (such as Tabular outputs) can yield more summarized results. These files and contents are described in more detail in the “Output Details and Examples” document.
As an example, here is what the normal “csv” file might look like in Excel™:
Likewise, a tabular output (usually in HTML format – which can be read by any web browser) might look like:
|Electricity (GJ)||Natural Gas (GJ)||Other Fuel (GJ)||Purchaseh Cooling (GJ)||Purchaseh Heating (GJ)||Water (m3)|
|Total End Uses||283.03||180.56||0.00||0.00||0.00||363.07|
