Time Consuming Honeybee Energy Simulation

Hello Everyone,

It’s my first time posting here and I really need help.

I am currently working on my thesis which is about testing building configurations for different building typologies and comparing them in terms of Energy Demand, Daylight and Solar Radiation Potential using Honeybee.

I have to test 90 forms, which sounds doable, yet one energy simulation takes about 2 hours to give me energy results for 1 form, which means i need about 180 hours to get the energy results for the 90 forms, which I think is a lot since i will also test other building typologies.

If anyone can please help me to figure out what might be the cause of this time-consuming simulation? or suggest me a solution to speed up the energy simulation work? or any alternative to honeybee?
I have attached my grasshopper script. (Units in meter)

Many thanks.

Hi @Yom,

With the new LBT components you can run quick energy simulations. You can instal it next to the Legacy components using the polination single click installer, wich can be found here:

I have put a basic workflow in your model.
