Phase change materials (PCMs) can be used for the compact storage of thermal energy for later use, often as part of renewable heating or cooling systems. CrodaTherm™ bio-based PCMs are ideal for these applications because they absorb and release significant amounts of thermal energy within a narrow temperature range. Moreover, the renewable, bio-based nature of CrodaTherm aligns perfectly with systems designed with sustainability and energy efficiency in mind.

Thermal energy storage systems allow energy to be captured during times of cheaper energy (such as at night) or when energy is most abundant and utilised during peak hours. This saves money and provides an additional infrastructure benefit by shifting peak loads and helping to balance the electricity grid. 

PCMs also allow capturing and reuse of thermal energy that would otherwise be wasted, thereby saving energy and money.
