The best place to find information on how to compile EnergyPlus is probably on the GitHub wiki for EnergyPlus on the page for BuildingEnergyPlus. There is also a link to this page on the bottom of the main EnergyPlus GitHub page.

thanks. what does this paragraph mean as below for compiling?

Navigate in the terminal to the root of the build tree. You will launch the cmake GUI from this location. The program must be passed an argument that specifies the location of the root of the source tree. For example, if the build directory is directly next to the source directory, the command could be called for the default build environment by calling the GUI as such: ccmake ../EnergyPlusTeam

I did not find a executable named: EnergyPlusTeam

I think that is just the name of the directory that holds the source.

Yes, it is the source directory. I've been doing Linux builds lately, so I'll try to clarify that paragraph a little.

Thanks a lot. what does the mean of EnergyPlusTeam as in the sentence: "ccmake ../EnergyPlusTeam"? I did not find file name of EnergyPlusTeam.

You should use the directory that contains your source. So use what ever name that you are using after the "ccmake". The "../EnergyPlusTeam" is just an example that uses an old name for the source code repository.
