I have fixed most of the errors which cropped up but I couldnt get my head around what this error means and how to address it. Appreciate your help.

Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 8.2.0-8397c2e30b, YMD=2015.03.20 23:13,IDD_Version 8.2.0

** Severe ** Sizing:Zone Name, duplicate name=AMENITIES

* Severe * Sizing:Zone Name, duplicate name=RETAIL

* ~~~ * Zone may have been entered in a ZoneList assignment.

* Fatal * Sizing:Zone: Errors found in getting input. Program terminates.

...Summary of Errors that led to program termination:**

..... Reference severe error count=2 ..... Last severe error=Sizing:Zone Name, duplicate name=RETAIL *** Warning: Node connection errors not checked - most system input has not been read (see previous warning). *** Fatal error -- final processing. Program exited before simulations began. See previous error messages.

From InputOutputReference: "Users need to remember that no objects related to HVAC except for HVAC template objects are needed in the IDF file. The existence of other objects (unless specifically described in the following sections) may cause unexpected errors to occur. Sizing:Zone, Sizing:System, and Sizing:Plant objects will be generated by the corresponding HVACTemplate objects; the user does not need to create these elsewhere in the input file." Hope this suits your case.
