I am trying to find a total energy consumption and heating and cooling loads in each 1 min . Is it possible that we have our results in 1 min in EnergyPlus?

If you change the Timestep to 1 minute by setting the number of timesteps per hour to 60 that would allow it.

To get the outputs then you'd want to set your Output:Variable reporting frequency to Timestep as well.

Note that changing your timestep can also have effects on the total energy use estimated - it will probably be small most of the time (as long as you don't do something like set the timestep to 1 hour) but it is probably something worth checking and noting.
