Demonstration plant for cold storage in phase change materials

In this project phase change materials (PCM) are used in an innovative way by reducing the cooling power requirement in an office building. A PCM based thermal energy storage designed to reduce the peak power demand by approximately 25% will be evaluated in a later project. Numerical modeling is used for design and evaluation of a pilot plants built in the laboratory. The overall objective of the project is to develop design tools (missing today) for similar PCM storages as well as lead to a full-scale demonstration facility.
