Thermal storage and discharge efficiency as a function of the PCM fusion temperature: simulations and experimental analysis

Despite their very promising building energy storage capabilities, PCM are still in the investigating phase before a large potential deployment. This is due to several challenges [1] such as high storage capacity and efficient heat extraction [2]. If the storage capacity can be adapted by implementing an appropriate quantity of PCM, the heat extraction efficiency is more delicate and difficult to optimize. It depends on the conductivity between the PCM surface and the indoor air and can be enhanced by ventilating the PCM surface.
