DYNASTEE stands for: "DYNamic Analysis, Simulation and Testing applied to the Energy and Environmental performance of buildings". DYNASTEE is a platform for exchange of knowledge and information on the application of tools and methodologies for the assessment of the energy performance of buildings. DYNASTEE functions under the auspices of the INIVE and it is open to all researchers, industrial developers and designers, involved in these subjects.
The EU energy research projects PASSYS (1985-1992), COMPASS and PASLINK created the initial European network of outdoor test facilities, developed test methods, analysis methodologies and simulation techniques. It resulted eventually into the PASLINK EEIG network (1994). The network profiled itself as a scientific community of experts on Testing, Analysis and Modelling. In 1998, PASLINK EEIG started a new project: PVHYBRID-PAS, on the overall performance assessment of photovoltaic technologies integrated in the building envelope. The use of the outdoor test facilities in several member states situated in different climates, together with the available expertise on analysis and simulation techniques, offered the ingredients for more successful projects: IQ-TEST (2001), focusing on quality assurance in testing and analysis under outdoor test conditions, as well as evaluation techniques of collected in-situ data. The expertise of the network was also offered to other European projects, such as DAME-BC, ROOFSOL, PRESCRIPT, IMPACT and PV-ROOF.
In 2005, the EEIG was converted into an informal network that today is known as DYNASTEE. It is offering a network of excellence and should be considered as an open platform for sharing knowledge with industry, decision makers and researchers. It has been very active in supporting projects such as the IEA-EBC Annex 58 and more recently the IEA-EBC Annex 71 'Building energy performance assessment based on in-situ measurements'.
