This paper concerns reasons - and solutions – for the time lag in the uptake and use of building simulation in the Czech Republic relative to many other countries. Following a brief introduction, several barriers to the use of simulation are identified. Barriers can be classified as cultural, economical or technical but there are many interactions. The paper then concentrates on recent work and activities, which aim to reduce these barriers. A general methodology for use of modelling and simulation in Czech conditions is demonstrated in detail with a case study, which includes calibration and input data preparation. Several other case studies demonstrating the application of simulation for solving typical Czech problems are elaborated. Incorporation of modelling and simulation in the research and education at Czech higher institutes of education is presented. The paper finishes with elaborating activities aimed at knowledge transfer to people in practice.
