I have a single glass window with an internal blind in my EnergyPlus model. In Envelop Summary output, only the U-value of the glass is calculated. How can I find out the U-value of the blind and the combination of glass and blind?

In one of my IDFs, I noticed a WindowMaterial:SimpleGlazingSystem object.

WindowMaterial, !- Name 2.10086, !- U-Factor 0.21; !- Solar Heat Gain Coefficient

I would compare this with the Envelope Summary output, and if it is different, it may be the U-value of the combination of blind and glass.
