Default [Workbench] How can I get the element area data?

Novosiberian is on a distinguished road

I solved a mechanical problem and now I'm interested in the strain energy analysis. Typical solution in the Workbench gives you the strain energy volume at the nodes of each element (these colorful images in solution of the Mechanical Workbench). For further analysis I need the calculated strain energy at the nodes AND the corresponding area of the element (in my case the simulation is 2D, it would be the volume in 3D simulation). In statistics of the meshing I just have the amount of nodes and elements, but not the exact data for every node and element.

Does anybody know how to extract the data from the ANSYS Mechanical? I've been searching for the whole day and now I'm thinking that I have to write an additional script for this... It would be really time consuming for me, since I am not really familiar with IronPython.

Best regards and thanks in advance!
