Phase change material (PCM) capitalizes on the energy storage and release associated to phase changes between solids and liquids. As the bat temperature and ambient (outside) temperature elevates, the energy is captured and stored through a change from solid to liquid. As the ambient temperature decreases, the PCM materials release the thermal energy to the bat house; consequently stabilizing the internal roost conditions. Development and testing are to begin in April.
Stay tuned for more updates!
