Thermal energy storage (TES) is a key element for effective and increased utilization of solar energy in the sectors heating and cooling, process heat, and power generation. Solar thermal energy shows seasonally (summer–winter), daily (day–night), and hourly (clouds) flux variations which does not enable a solar system to provide heat or thermal power according to the demand profile of specific users. Strategies to overcome this problem are to operate in hybrid (solar + fossil) mode and/or to use TES. By integrated TES solar thermal system shows significant benefits: - Solar contribution is increased, allows operation during times of no solar radiation. - Rapid flux variations can be compensated (avoid strong gradients for connected components, e.g., piping, heat exchanger, boiler, turbines, etc.) which increase lifetime of components. - Surplus energy can be used and does not need to be dumped. - Size of subsequent components
