Individual Energy Devices in Energy Dash versus use Utility Meter

So I’m successfully tracking individual devices energy use in the energy dashboard. The dashboard allows me to look at day, month, year etc.

However I can only surface that within the dash as far as I know. If I want to re-use that data OUTSIDE the dash I need to manually create sensors via the Utility meter integration. I track over 20 separate devices in the dash. Creating Utility Meter sensors for those (hour, day, month, year) is quite some work (=4x20 = 80 sensors).

Is that really required or is there another (faster way) to do this and/or re-use the data from the energy dash?
