Revision history [back]

I wouldn't completely trust the LEED Summary report from EnergyPlus, it's somewhat outdated and in need of some improvements (ref: issue #4588). In particular, the peak demand by end use reports the peak relative to the building's peak, not the absolute peak which is what GBCI looks at.

As far as I know, EnergyPlus doesn't allow the Summary Reports to be written to separate CSV files and I agree that this would be a great feature to have for streamlining workflows. In the past I've typically copied/pasted the tabular data I wanted from the Summary Reports into Excel and then linked cells to the LEED reports. Once it's set up the only tedious part is the copy/paste, but that can be solved with some creative measure writing/scripting.

See @JasonGlazer's Python script epXML2CSV for one solution. Mine involved calling a Python script from a Reporting Measure.

Update

There is now a OpenStudio Reporting measure.
