Running your IDF file and error analysis, there are the errors reported.

* Severe * <root>[LifeCycleCost:UsePriceEscalation][LifeCycleCost:UsePriceEscalation 2][resource] - "FuelOil#1" - Failed to match against any enum values. * Severe * <root>[ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][maximum_figures_in_shadow_overlap_calculations] - Value type "string" for input "SutherlandHodgman" not permitted by 'type' constraint. * Severe * <root>[ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][polygon_clipping_algorithm] - "SimpleSkyDiffuseModeling" - Failed to match against any enum values. * Severe * <root>[ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][shading_calculation_method] - "AverageOverDaysInFrequency" - Failed to match against any enum values. * Severe * <root>[ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][shading_calculation_update_frequency_method] - "7" - Failed to match against any enum values.

You may have to redefine these values in the Eplus objects through an IDF editor or delete them through IDF editor or Wordpad, if they are not necessary. It is likely the simulation was never successful and hence you couldn't see any cooling.

Also, I tried to open your IDF file through the editor, I got the following error and could not open (I could run the simulation) the file to check details.
