Building integrated phase change materials


Technology Description

Phase-change materials provide latent heat storage (i.e. at a constant temperature, by changing the material's phase) and are integrated into different building components. They enhance the building's thermal performance as heat losses are reduced.
Integration: in concrete, glazing, between structural elements, using insulation wallboards or even combined with building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV).

Relevance for Net Zero

The integration of phase-change materials enables greater compactness, a reduction in total system costs (through packaging) and the exploitation of synergies from the various functionalities of building components. Today, costs are still prohibitive of greater market uptake.
