    • CO2 mitigation accounting for Thermal Energy Storage (TES) case studies 

      Cabeza, Luisa F.; Miró, Laia; Oró Prim, Eduard; Gracia Cuesta, Alvaro de; Martin, Viktoria; Krönauer, Andreas; Rathgeber, Christoph; Farid, Mohammed M.; Paksoy, Halime Ö.; Martínez, Mònica; Fernández Renna, Ana Inés (Elsevier, 2015)
      According to the IPCC, societies can respond to climate changes by adapting to its impacts and by mitigation, that is, by reducing GHG emissions. No single technology can provide all of the mitigation potential in any ...
    • Heat transfer enhancement of fatty acids when used as PCMs in thermal energy storage 

      Mazman, Muhsin; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Mehling, Harald; Paksoy, Halime Ö.; Evliya, Hunay (John Wiley & Sons, 2008)
      Phase change materials (PCM) used in latent heat storage systems usually have very low thermal conductivities. This is a major drawback in maintaining the required heat exchange rate between PCM and heat transfer fluid. ...
    • Unconventional experimental technologies available for phase change materials (PCM) characterization. Part 1. Thermophysical properties 

      Cabeza, Luisa F.; Barreneche Güerisoli, Camila; Martorell, Ingrid; Miró, Laia; Sari-Bey, Sana; Fois, Magali; Paksoy, Halime Ö.; Sahan, Nurten; Weber, Robert; Constantinescu, Mariaella; Anghel, Elena Maria; Malikova, Marta; Krupa, Igor; Delgado, Mónica; Dolado, Pablo; Furmanski, Piotr; Jaworski, Maciej; Haussmann, Thomas; Gschwander, Stefan; Fernández Renna, Ana Inés (Elsevier, 2015)
      The use of thermal energy storage by phase change materials (PCM) is increasing in interest for building applications. For the deployment of the technology, appropriate characterization of PCM and hybrid PCM is essential, ...
    • Unconventional experimental technologies used for phase change materials (PCM) characterization: part 2 – morphological and structural characterization, physico-chemical stability and mechanical properties 

      Fernández Renna, Ana Inés; Solé, Aran; Giró Paloma, Jessica; Martínez, Mònica; Hadjieva, Mila; Boudenne, Abdel; Constantinescu, Mariaella; Anghel, Elena Maria; Malikova, Marta; Krupa, Igor; Peñalosa, Conchita; Lázaro, Ana; Paksoy, Halime Ö.; Cellat, Kemal; Vecstaudža, Jana; Bajare, Diana; Sumiga, Bostjan; Boh, Bojana; Haussmann, Thomas; Gschwander, Stefan; Weber, Robert; Furmanski, Piotr; Jaworski, Maciej; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2015)
      Due to the high interest of appropriate characterization of PCM and hybrid PCM composites, different research centres and universities are using several material characterization techniques not commonly used with PCM, to ...
    • Utilization of phase change materials in solar domestic hot water systems 

      Mazman, Muhsin; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Mehling, Harald; Nogués Aymamí, Miquel; Evliya, Hunay; Paksoy, Halime Ö. (Elsevier, 2009)
      Thermal energy storage systems which keep warm and cold water separated by means of gravitational stratification have been found to be attractive in low and medium temperature thermal storage applications due to their ...
