Energy consumption is expected to continue rising, and in conjunction with greater environmental concern, it has boosted the development of renewable and sustainable energy sources, including storage media materials for latent heat thermal energy storage. Biobased Phase Change Materials (PCMs) are materials derived from renewable and environmentally friendly resources and are a great solution as they have similar properties to paraffin-based PCMs. In view of designing a nano-enhanced PCMs (NEPCMs) based on a commercial plant-based PCM, CrodaTherm60, was selected due to its high latent heat capacity as well as its medium melting point, 60°C, making it suitable for solar domestic hot water systems.
