Abstract: The design of a Thermal energy storage system indicates the progress being made in this field. It reflects the level of implementation of new ideas by local societies as well as the Energy policy at the National level. We are using heat storage capacity of bamboo in combination with phase changing material for space heating , bamboo has some beneficial properties like its heat storage capacity increases with increasing temperature and its conductivity too is quite slow which is why it can easily preserve heat for longer durations( nearly up to 7 to 8 hours.) We look forward to utilize phase changing material along with bamboo for further increasing the heat storage capacity (large quantity of heat can be easily stored) of system so that we can easily achieve the sufficient temperature in order to meet human comfort conditions in all seasons(especially winter). Space heating represents the largest end use in buildings, offices etc, and consumes more than 7 trillion Joules of site ener gy annually. With this project we intend to put the waste heat to better use by diverting it to a better heating system which includes the use of the heat storage capacity of bamboo amplified with the use of Phase Changing Material. In this project we intend to test various PCM with bamboo to get a better option to be paired with it. The iterations being carried out on our self designed test rig are expected to give us reliable and accountable results
