Development and Application of Phase Change Materials (PCMs)

HETAC – High Efficiency Thermal Air Conditioning

  • High Efficiency Thermal Air Conditioning (HETAC) utilises thermal storage capabilities of Phase Change Materials (PCMs).
  • PCMs provide stored energy for cooling during peak heat load period.
  • HETAC cools/recharges the PCM during most efficient period utilising off peak power and low ambient temperature.
  • PCM used is – environmentally friendly,  biodegradable, non toxic.
  • Conventional air conditioners operate at their most inefficient during peak heat load period utilising high tariff power and counteracting high ambient temperature.
  • HETAC requires minimal power to operate resulting in more than 50% energy savings compared with conventional air conditioning.
