As far as I know, the IdealLoadsAirSystem didn't build a full HVAC system and assumes 100% efficiency. It won't generate heating and cooling electricity consumption, instead it would be under District Cooling and District Heating columns in your html report which accounts for load-only calculation. Hope it helps. And an idf would help to address your problem too.

The IdealLoadsAirSystem reports it's energy consumption as DistricHeating and DistrictCooling energy. You can see this line in the source code for the Input-Output reference shows it. For some reason, it was not correctly compiled in the BigLadder online version of the I/O reference. If you want to use electricity in your model, you can use a system that has a HeatingCoil:Electric object.
