SOLAR THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM: ITS NEED AND CHALLENGES
Publication Date : 26/12/2019
The progression of energy supply always faces some difficulties as the demand for energy always remains higher than production. Energy from conventional sources leads to global warming, whereas energy from non-conventional sources is occasional. Solar energy is the prime source of renewable energy and it requires use of storage medium. The storage medium stores energy when it is available in full excess and delivers stored energy when supply is inadequate or when direct sunlight is not available. Thermal energy storage system plays an important role to achieve high efficiency and uninterrupted operation. The paper deals with scope of thermal energy storage system and different techniques of storing solar thermal energy. This article is expected to explore current trends, opportunities, needs and challenges in solar thermal energy storage systems.
