Abstract(s)Using Phase Change Materials (PCM) for thermal energy storage is an effective solution both for more efficient use of energy and its consumption reduction. The needs of heating and cooling systems can be reduced with the adequate use of PCM. The objective of this study was the development of new interior cement mortar with thermal enhanced properties by incorporating microencapsulated PCM. The compositions were fixed in order to fulfill the mechanical properties standard requirements. Thermal performance in Passy`s test cells was carried and showed that the use of a cement mortar with PCM microcapsules contributes to easily obtain the comfort temperature.
