Phase change materials, thermal energy storage, heattransfer, and renewable energy.


Phase Change Material (PCM) is considered as a good Thermal Energy Storage (TES) material as it can provide much higher energy storage densities compared to conventional sensible thermal storage materials. An extensive literature review has been carried out on the use of PCM in thermal storage systems. This paper discusses the main problems of using PCM for energy storage as well as proposed future research work to address the issues.
