I have looked in EnergyPlus and OpenStudio Results reports as well as in the posts related to Dehumidification. I am able to use ReadVarsESO.exe to create eplusout.csv and read the power and energy consumption, but it requires additional processing to obtain highest coincident peak power, total energy consumption, etc.

I don't see an actual question in your post, so I can only assume you'd like some kind of summary to be available in the HTML output. You should look at Output:Table:XXX objects, namely Output:Table:Annual Output:Table:Monthly.

You could set up something like the following:

  Output:Table:Monthly,
    Dehumidifier DX Report,        !- Name
    ,                        !- Digits After Decimal
    Zone Dehumidifier Sensible Heating Energy,  !- Variable or Meter 1 Name
    SumOrAverage,            !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 1
    Zone Dehumidifier Sensible Heating Rate,  !- Variable or Meter 2 Name
    Maximum,            !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 2
    Zone Dehumidifier Sensible Heating Rate,  !- Variable or Meter 3 Name
    HoursNonZero,            !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 3
    Zone Dehumidifier Electric Energy,  !- Variable or Meter 4 Name
    SumOrAverage,            !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 4
    Zone Dehumidifier Electric Power,  !- Variable or Meter 5 Name
    Maximum,            !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 5
    Zone Dehumidifier Runtime Fraction,  !- Variable or Meter 6 Name
    SumOrAverage,                 !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 6
    Zone Dehumidifier Part Load Ratio,  !- Variable or Meter 7 Name
    SumOrAverage;  !- Aggregation Type for Variable or Meter 7

This will give you a table like this one (click to see it full size) for each zone where you have a Dehumidifier:
