Since Energy-Plus calculates the peak load and displays it using ZoneLoadComponentSummary, it is possible for us to tweak the program a little bit to force monthly load component summary ?

Hi, I know this question is a cliche, but I would like to know if any one has a tweak.

Have you tried running separate simulations for each month?

Cool, it works when I create 12 different design days for 12 months based on ASHRAE climate data and run the simulation 12 times. Its tedious, but works. Thank you for your response.

I'm going to summarize this as a response.

There is no built in way to get the ZoneLoadComponentSummary report for each month.

A work around is to run separate EnergyPlus simulations for each month. To do this, create 12 different design days for each of the 12 months based on ASHRAE climate data. Run the simulation 12 times with each design day, once for each month.
