A thermal energy storage heat exchanger can include a core defining a plurality of airflow passages to receive an airstream therethrough. The core can be made of a composite of a phase change material shape-stabilized by a polymer. The phase change material can be structurally supported by the polymer and the phase change material can be configured to change phases to store energy from and deliver stored energy to the airstream when the airflow passes through the core.
