Energy evaluation model

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi

Actually i am doing my dissertation on Energy analysis by using archicad 17.
I have created the model of the building , however i am trying to run the energy evaluation model and it said that the project does not contain any thermal block.

Could you tell me what i have to do.

Thanks a lot
