Environmentally friendly, this kind of energy is renewable, and new uses of solar thermal energy are being developed, such as solar thermal panels. The future of solar energy is bright. Solar Thermal Energy is the use of solar energy to produce heat. This isn’t a complicated procedure. Most of us are probably familiar with the process and see it in our everyday lives.
Have you tried to touch an object after it has been laid under the sun on a hot summer day? Solar thermal energy works in the same way except that the heat generated is put to practical use to heat water or other mediums.
During this energy conversion and exchange the glycol solution is pumped through the water storage tank where it then heats the water. This is a continuous process; and in line with the sun’s solar radiation, you will be provided with hot water.
