Phase change material slurries and their commercial applications (PAMELA)

Objetivo

This proposal aims to develop and characterise thermo-fluid properties of phase change material slurries ( PCMS ) for use In energy storage, heating and cooling applications over the temperature ranges of 0-20°C and 30-50°C. PCMS can improve system efficiencies, reduce thermal storage volume requirements, effectively smooth peak heating and cooling loads and reduce (by up to an order of magnitude) pumping power requirements. This proposal will deal with underlying technology with a broad range of industrial relevant applications. The emphasis will be on building and solar energy and industrial process applications. At present 40% of final EU energy consumption is used within the built environment. The use of PCMS in building cooling applications alone is predicted to reduce CO2 emissions by 10%, while the reductions from their use in heating systems may save 4 million tonnes of CO2.
