About This Topic
Solar Thermal Energy is one of the most popular renewable technologies, enjoying a deep theoretical background dating from the fifties of the last century or even before. The great quantity of research documents published each year in this field reflects the interest, evolution and strength of this topic.
Today, thermal solar energy holds a consolidated place in the field of hot water production for domestic purposes and for sanitary and sports facilities, but still has great potential for industrial application.
Solar thermoelectric plants provide very efficient energy storage, which makes an interesting alternative to other renewable energies for ensuring electricity supplies during the night or adverse meteorological conditions.
All in all, not only can Solar Thermal Energy be thought of as the present but also as part of the future in Energy Transition.

In this study, the performance of a self-sufficient controller used for a solar-latent heat domestic hot water (DHW) production unit under real-world operating conditions was analyzed. The unit consists of a flat-plate solar collector and a latent heat storage tank. The controller is powered by a small solar panel and governs the charging [...]
