Abstract: An exploratory research project, granted by European Commission - Joint Research Centre, called Eco-Energy Efficient Envelopes for innovative Buildings (E4iBuildings), has been recently started. The research project investigates and develops innovative products based on cement composites for building envelopes, studies the feasibility and the impact of different solutions based on Phase Change Materials (PCMs), through the assessment of mechanical and thermal properties. The paper presents the aims of the experimental activities ongoing at Joint Research Centre, and in particular the matters related to: performance analysis on three PCM families, methods for macro-encapsulation and thermo-physical characterisation of the innovative building material.
