I am using pyenergyplus api, and was wondering how can I get the HVAC electricity consumption per zone? More specifically, I wish to get the cooling load spent per zone for each timestep.

If you specifically want cooling load per thermal zone, you can add a ZoneHVAC:IdealAirSystem to each thermal zone. When using it, you may want to disable outdoor air, dehumidification, and humidification. Then look at the Zone Air System Sensible Cooling Energy for timestep output.
