We present a computational analysis and comparison of nanowire arrays for efficient transmission of electromagnetic power at optical frequencies. A reliable simulation environment involving the multilevel fast multipole algorithm for fast iterative solutions of surface integral equations is used to accurately compute field intensity and power density values in the vicinity of nanowires in diverse configurations. The results demonstrate favorable properties of honeycomb structures that can provide efficient power transmission in comparison to other arrangements.
