The rapid and increasing growth of urbanization and the consequent increase in urban population have had various consequences in various fields, the most important of which are the increase in consumption and demand for energy resources. Important factors affecting energy consumption by buildings; Density, diversity, design and other statistical characteristics. Hence, the concept of energy in the building is formed as clusters of classifications in urban contexts in the context of the concept of morphology. Therefore, building species as cells of this concept determine the degree of energy efficiency The method of data collection is as documentation and using Bing Map data reference and data generation. Case study sample on a scale of 500 by 500 as an isolated urban fabric in the explained scales, different building configurations, the common types of which have been selected and simulated according to the form structure of Khorramshahr urban settlements. Energy considerations were also explained by using energy consumption model that presented in context of urban morphology. the findings of the current research show the energy consumption status according to the evaluation of morphological variables. It is the morphotypes as well as the climatic parameters that have determined the specific results of each case and also provided the appropriate type and rating.
