Solar power is expected to play an important role in the future electricity supply chain. However, many challenges remain to be overcome. One such challenge is the intermittent nature of the energy source. A potential solution to the challenge is the use of energy storage technologies. This chapter provides an overview of the area, covering technical requirements of solar electrical energy storage, options for the storage technologies, utility-scale and distributed-scale storage technologies, and economic aspects of the storage technologies.
