Understanding Phase Change Materials for Thermal Energy Storage.
As the world searches for practical ways to decarbonise our activities and mitigate associated climate change, approaches to alternative energy are hampered by the intermittent nature of energy sources, such as solar and wind. One possible solution to help boost reliability and adoption of such renewable energy sources is improved energy storage capabilities.
