Material development and characterisation


  • Develop new materials to be used in thermal energy storage
  • Look for possible existing materials to be used in thermal energy storage, especially low cost materials, including wastes and by-products
  • Characterise the newly developed materials or the newly considered materials
  • Compare and contrast characterisation procedures for testing of thermal energy storage materials
