The integrand to NIntegrate seems far more complicated than the amount of
accuracy that you are asking for.  This is probably why it is so slow to

There seem to be problems with the notebook you posted that make it
unreliable to try to evaluate.
<< Graphics`Graphics`
seems to need a semicolon at the end and there seem to be other
things that make it evaluate and produce no output, for example if it
is evaluated, changed in any tiny way, saved, and then tried to
evauate again.

toto[l_] := Sum[dNd=CF=95[l, angle=CF=95[=CE=A8, thc, =CE=B8source], thc]*
   vlight[thc, =CE=A8, =CE=B8source, l]]], {=CE=A8, =CF=80/2,2=CF=80,=CF=80=

is only slightly faster, because of the very complicated expression
to be evaluated, but produces approximately the same result as
NIntegrate evaluating across the entire interval.
