Abstract: After the successful conclusion of a series of large European research actions in the field of passive solar energy applications to buildings (PASSYS I and II, COMPASS, PASLINK, PV-HYBRID-PAS, …), the research community involved created the European Economic Interest Grouping PASLINK to consolidate the research findings and the operational structure built up and to make it accessible to the building community. Major efforts were spent to develop common test methods, test facilities and simulation tools, which resulted in a powerful method based on outdoor tests in well-defined test facilities and on scaling and replication of the results from testing to real buildings. In later projects (IQ-TEST, DAME-BC) the quality procedures for testing and evaluation were improved and upgraded. And finally the dissemination efforts led to the creation of a new structure and to a series of conferences. The concept for dynamic analysis, simulation and testing of the energy and environmental performance of buildings and building components has now reached maturity and it is ready for broad uptake by the research community in the European Research Area. Thereto new networking activities are set up. And the structure of the PASLINK grouping is being reviewed and prepared for change.
