Thermal Energy Storage event

XaRMAE organizes an event in the field of Thermal Energy Storage in buildings. The event lasts 3 hours, it will be held in Fontseré Room of Physics faculty of University of Barcelona on 3rd November. And is focused basically in the use of phase change materials for stabilize temperature fluctuations in buildings in order to save energy. Two XaRMAE groups (Diopma and GREA) research in this field in collaboration in order to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.

In this event Prof. Gennady Ziskind, from the Ben-Gurion University of Negev will explain how to improve the melting behaviour of PCM in order to enhance the heat transfer and the stored Energy.

New European Study Tour in Spain: the Schwartz-Hautmont Offices Building

The Study tour will be in Vila-Seca, Tarragona, Cataluña, next 25th October.

The guides on this study tour will be the architects Coque Claret and Dani Calatayud. Amongst other things, they will explain the energetic and constructive futures and show the way that the building was designed, built and commissioned.

This activity free and open to the public, previous registration and confirmation, incription.

A free bus service from/to Barcelona will be offered (a minimum of participants are required), so the participants interested have to indicate it in the registration on the web (European Study tour + Bus service to ).
