  • Phase change materials (PCMs) are used in commercial buildings to save energy by actively absorbing and releasing heat. PCMs help maintain comfortable building temperatures and may reduce energy consumption in California and western climate zones with enough variation in day and night time temperatures. This paper investigates current PCM market trends and assesses their future potential application in commercial buildings. The goal is to determine their efficacy in peak demand reduction and… CONTINUE READING
