NRG-STORAGE workshop

Open Workshop Invitation on Phase-Change Cementitious Materials

October 27th, 2022,

09:45 - 16:30

Prague, Czech Republic, Orea Hotel Pyramida.

This will be a first public workshop presenting the development of unique phase change material to improve the energy performance of buildings. The workshop is targeted for professionals and researchers working in the area of sustainable and energy efficient buildings or in modern materials and technologies for thermal insulation.



The workshop will cover the following topics:

- development of a new phase change cementitious materials starting from micromechanical simulation and modelling up to laboratory tests

- thermal and mechanical properties of the new material

- experimental program and results for sample wall panels including the new material

- field testing and performance evaluation of the new material in experimental buildings

The participation is free of charge using the registration form HERE. The workshop will be also streamed on-line.



The main objective of the NRG-STORAGE project is to develop a novel ultra-light concrete that includes PCMs with both active/passive energy storage systems in non-residential buildings.
