Latent heat thermal energy storage attracts more and more attraction recently. Molecular Dynamical (MD) simulation can be applied to investigate the heat and mass transfer mechanism of phase change materials (PCMs) from the micro point of view, especially for nano-encapsulated and nanoparticle-enhanced PCMs. The paper briefly summaries the status of MD simulations used in the energy storage systems, and the future research topics are pointed out finally.
