I'm running different design alternatives in PAT and gotten output results using the OpenStudio Report measure. Is there a summary reporting measure that will compile all the Design Alternative results into one table? For example it would be useful to have all the end uses consumption for each design alternative in a summary table. Is this possible? And if so is it possible to get it in CSV format?

If you look inside the PAT application, you should find a Resources subdirectory and within that a directory called projectReports. This contains the three standard PAT report HTML files. You could use one of these examples as a starting point to create a new report.

Alright I will check that directory out. I also discovered though just through the OpenStudio Results measure that specific output variables can be added to the Results CSV that is created each run in PAT. This is basically what I want because it allows me to add different end use consumption variables and get them added to the total results CSV. One thing though that confused me was that there was not great documentation on what the different output variables were called in the OpenStudio Results measure. Is there a list somewhere for all the different output variables in the short_name form?
