Development of thermal energy storage technologies for solar thermal systems has been conducted since the mid-1970s. This paper presents an overview of past and present experimental activities for electrical power and process heat applications both within and outside the United States. The factors affecting the selection of a storage technology for these applications, as well as the nature of those applications, are discussed. Future research needs are also described.
