Hi all, simple questione, i'm relatively new to energyplus, i have run my own simulation and i get the TOTAL kwh consumption for my building during the simulation period which is 3 months. Is there a way to set the output of energyplus to get a excel file where i have in a column the DAYS and in the other column the KWH CONSUMPTION? just like this SO I CAN GET A GRAPH KWH VS TIME (IN DAYS)

thanks you

EnergyPlus can produce output on a daily basis by specifying Daily in the report frequency field of the Output:Variable input object or in the Output:Meter input object. These generally produce a CSV file that can be opened with a spreadsheet program. To see what output variables are available for a specific file you should include the Output:VariableDictionary input object and run a simulation to see the list in the RDD and MDD files.
