There is Hot Water Equipment in E+/OS as a simple load definition (like equipment/lighting etc). I got OS report with hot water load as district heating. The default end use subcategory is general. I would like to know have any way to set end use type of Hot Water Equipment as Electricity ? OS report Thanks

No, you can't change the fuel that HotWaterEquipment uses. You could get the desired effect by instead using WaterUse:Equipment objects to represent your hot water use. Assign them to a WaterUse:Connections object connected to the demand side of a PlantLoop with a WaterHeater:Mixed with the 'FuelType' set to 'Electricity' on the supply side. E+ requires a pump on a PlantLoop, but you can set the pump head to zero if your system doesn't actually have a pump.
