HT-PCM – Feasibility assessment for a high temperature phase change material storage

The project HT-PCM aims at providing a feasibility study of using phase change materials (PCM), e.g. erythritol, as storage solution for temperature ranges in between 110 °C to 120 °C. The storage concept is designed to be integrated with solar thermal collectors to provide solar process heat to industries. The proposed PCM solution is expected to decrease cost, achieving a latent energy density in the range of 80 kWh per m³ of storage volume at a cost lower than that of synthetic oil.
