Clean energy for all is part of the global sustainable development goals. Therefore, increase the share of renewable energy and improve the energy efficiency of different systems are topics of great interest. In this context, thermal energy storage technologies can play an important role in the renewable energy systems by facilitating temporal shifts to meet electricity and heat demands. During this lecture, we will introduce the use of latent heat thermal energy storage in concentrated solar thermal power systems.
