I am running a DOE prototype building for the medium office and the Elevator is consuming close to 48000 kwh, Now how can I see if that energy is contributing to the heaimage descriptionting load in the building?

The ElectricEquipment object has a field for Fraction Lost. This is the fraction of the design level (W) heat that is "lost" (i.e. fraction that is not contributing to zone heating/cooling load). If this field is zero (which it is in medium office prototype), then all heat from this equipment is contributing to the zone heating/cooling load.
