Recent years have seen a surge of interest in renewable energy sources. Most renewable energy sources are intermittent in their production of power. One solution is to store the energy and draw from that stored energy in a controlled fashion. Recent advances have been made in solar thermal storage that would allow a solar thermal power system to operate year round and around the clock at nearly constant levels of electrical power production. This paper outlines how this can be accomplished.
