Abstract


The article shows an energy-accumulation system in change of phase materials, designed for a prototype dwelling used for building two bioclimatic and self-sufficient buildings. These bulidings have been built in Madrid, Washington and Beijing. The characteristics of these materials, the construction systems into which these materials were incorporated, its comparative valuation with sensitive accumulation systems, and the results of the building monitorization are included.

Keywords
