How to get Total Source Energy from HTML as Output:Meter or Variable?

How do I get this field to appear as an Output:Meter or Output:Variable?

image description

I noticed that TDV is reported in the HTML file in the circled cell, but I would much rather prefer the output to be in a csv file since I already have code to parse those files and collected data from several different simulations.

If you include an EnvironmentalImpactFactors object as well as appropriate FuelFactors objects several new output variables will be available to you and will be shown in the .MDD file including:

Zone,Meter,Source:Facility [J]

Search the .MDD file for the word "source" and you should see one for each type of energy used. You can then define a Output:Meter object similar to and Output:Variable object.

I found a way to do it. If I change to

Comma; !- Column Separator

Then I can easily access the cell in the CSV containing the Total Source Energy. Not a Variable of Meter, but still ends up in a CSV file, which is each to parse.
