I am developing a grasshopper tool that creates green roof geometry which directly correlates to solar exposure in order to improve the indoor thermal comfort of a particular building. To determine the PMV of the building before and after the incorporation of the green rood I am trying to run a basic energy simulation. The ouput of the" run energy simulation" component says the analysis is running but when I plug that output into the “read ep results” its says "the result file does not exist.
My second query is in relation to the incorporation of vegetation as a roof construction material. I have implemented vegetation using other scripts I have found on the forum but when I try and run an energy analysis with the incorporated vegetation construction it does not run because this construction material is not found in the library.
I am unable to upload any files as I am a new user., but any assistance would be greatly appreciated.Kind Regards Tina
