Recent Progress in Thermal Energy Storage in Buildings

Thermal energy storage has plenty of uses in buildings and contributes to improving energy efficiency in the form of increased renewable energy fraction in HVAC equipment and manage peak load shifting with synergized between building energy demand and grid energy supply. Storage concepts applied to the building sector have been classified as active or passive systems. There is a wide range of technologies and solutions for thermal energy storage, both proven technologies commercially available as well as new emerging technologies for building heating and heat storage. The overall aim of this Special Issue is to gather significant research contributions and review papers focusing on, and linking, both practical applications and scientific aspects of the problem. Articles reporting original, cutting-edge research with experimental, theoretical, and numerical findings unravelling pertinent aspects of novel thermal energy storage systems in buildings will be considered. Therefore, it is necessary to classify the application of thermal energy storage in building systems and put forward some suggestions for future work.

Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • New materials used for thermal energy storage and their applications in buildings
  • Development of Sensible, latent, and thermochemical heat storage systems in buildings
  • Heat storage mechanism and heat transfer enhancement of thermal energy storage systems in buildings
  • Numerical simulation of thermal energy storage measures in buildings
  • New applications for thermal energy storage in buildings
  • Design and operation parameters of thermal energy storage in buildings
  • Modeling and simulation of thermal energy storage in buildings
  • Thermodynamic and techno-economic analysis of thermal energy storage in buildings
