How to Integrate Surrounding Building Blocks to Annual Energy Performance

I’m analyzing a building’s annual energy performance and I aim to see the effect of surrounding buildings on that performance. I couldn’t figure out how to integrate surrounding buildings into the calculation. On the image below, the colorful building is my case building and the grey ones are the surrounding buildings. Any idea and help would be appreciated.

Add them to the model as shades_. You’ll see several examples in the Food4Rhino sample files that show this.
