Modelling heat transfer in porous media requires to take into account multiple-scale aspects inherent to porous media structures. Several methodologies have been developed to upscale the equations at a lower-scale and to obtain upper-scale models as it is outlined in a brief review based on a simple heat conduction example proposed in the first part of this paper. The more general and classical problem of heat transfer in porous media is reviewed in this paper with the emphasis on the fact that different behaviours and hence different models emerge at a given macro-scale, depending on the interplay of the various characteristic times and lengths characterizing the problem. Various classes of models are discussed and their relation ships outlined. Extensions to more complicated problems of heat transfer in porous media are discussed: coupling with mass diffusion, effect of heat sources, radiation, boiling, etc
