Purpose of the work: The aim of the study is to determine the performance of passive solar systems in Dutch mass-housing under realistic conditions with a view to shading, density, urban tissue and dwelling lay-out. Method of approach : The following passive solar systems have been taken into consideration : wondow, greenhouse and trombe wall. The variables in the investigated models are with regard to the urban lay-out:. block, strip-like block and orientation. Concerning the houses the variables are: insulation, thermal mass, airchanges, V/A ratio and % glazing area. Significant results: The results show that passive solar systems give only a small contribution to the heat need of a dwelling. Insulation and reduction of ventilation losses are more important to reach lowenergy housing. Urban lay-out and orientat ion don't have much influence. Prevention of shading is important in winter . Conclusion: Passive solar systems will only have a modest place in future ener gy supply of Dutch dwellings.
