Are all the CBECC excel output reports for standard compliance?

I ran four different models of the same building with different mechanical systems, but the hourly output report was the same for both electrical and gas usage for all four of the models which is unrealistic.

Are any of the output reports representative of energy usage, or do I need to go to a different program such as eQuest?

Is there an easy way to import a CBECC file to eQuest?

@m_schilling are you using CBECC-Com or CBECC-Res? Are you running annual simulations or something shorter? Are you looking at total electrical and gas usage, or for specific categories (lighting, appliances, etc.)?

I'm using CBECC-Com 2019.1.2. I've been looking at the output excel file ' - ab - HourlyResults' that generates in the project folder. I am just looking for total electrical and gas usage for a year for the four different options, but currently these values are the same for all four options despite having completely different mechanical systems such as VAV reheat compared to VRF with DOAS. The ' - ab - SpcLoadsFuel' has no therm data in it to compare.
