When I run Energy Plus idf file (using EP launch) I only can get monthly electricity and gas consumption data, while I need hourly data, instead of monthly. Is there any way to get hourly results from Energy Plus?

For building energy use, your EnergyPlus file needs Output:Meter objects like: Output:Meter,Electricity:Facility,hourly;

Output:Meter,NaturalGas:Facility,hourly;

Output:Meter,InteriorLights:Electricity,hourly;

Output:Meter,Heating:Electricity,hourly;

Output:Meter,Cooling:Electricity,hourly;

Output:Meter,Fans:Electricity;

Output:Meter,InteriorEquipment:Electricity;

You may also wish to add Output:Variable objects for reporting other information.
