    • Behaviour of a concrete wall containing micro‐encapsulated PCM after a decade of its construction 

      Cabeza, Luisa F.; Navarro Farré, Lidia; Pisello, Anna Laura; Olivieri, Lorenzo; Bartolomé, Cesar; Sánchez Sánchez, José; Álvarez Domínguez, Servando; Tenorio, José Antonio (Elsevier, 2019)
      Today, our society has the duty of reducing the energy consumed in the building sector. A promising technology to achieve this goal is the implementation of thermal energy storage (TES) solutions in buildings envelope. ...
    • Benchmarking of useful phase change materials for a building application 

      Navarro Farré, Lidia; Solé, Aran; Martín, Marc; Barreneche Güerisoli, Camila; Olivieri, Lorenzo; Tenorio, José Antonio; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2018)
      Nowadays, there is an increasing interest in more efficient building materials and new technologies to accomplish the objectives defined by energy policies. The combination of energy efficient building designs and integration ...
    • Building integration of PCM for natural cooling of buildings 

      Álvarez, Servando; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Ruiz-Pardo, Álvaro; Castell, Albert; Tenorio, José Antonio (Elsevier, 2013)
      The use of night cooling ventilation in addition of phase change materials (PCMs) is a very powerful strategy for reducing the cooling demand of buildings. Nevertheless, there are inherent drawbacks in the way things ...
    • Building thermal storage technology: Compensating renewable energy fluctuations 

      Guerrero Delgado, M. Carmen; Sánchez Ramos, José; Álvarez Domínguez, Servando; Tenorio, José Antonio; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2020)
      Emerging technologies and new intelligent management systems will be needed to rise to the energy challenges posed by buildings today. Thermally activated building systems (TABS) are attracting growing interest on the back ...
    • Developing a PCM-enhanced mortar for thermally active precast walls 

      Olivieri, Lorenzo; Tenorio, José Antonio; Revuelta Crespo, David; Navarro Farré, Lidia; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2018)
      This work presents an experimental research on the thermal properties of novel cementitious mortars incorporating microencapsulated Phase Change Materials intended to be used as the innermost layer in a precast radiant ...
    • Energy Efficiency Indicators for Assessing Construction Systems Storing Renewable Energy: Application to Phase Change Material-Bearing Façades 

      Tenorio, José Antonio; Sánchez-Ramos, José; Ruiz Pardo, Álvaro; Álvarez, Servando; Cabeza, Luisa F. (MDPI, 2015)
      Assessing the performance or energy efficiency of a single construction element by itself is often a futile exercise. That is not the case, however, when an element is designed, among others, to improve building energy ...
