The present concern about themes like the greenhouse effect, pollution, renewable energy and a durable society has incited researchers to find better ways of using the limited energy resources at our disposal. Solar energy is one of the most promising ways of power generation to limit the greenhouse effect by reducing CO2-emissions. Numerous solar energy systems have been studied and/or are under development like photovoltaic systems, combined photovoltaic and thermal systems, direct solar heating and cooling systems for air conditioning or refrigeration. Whatever the application is, an obvious, yet basic, characteristic of solar systems is the dependence of their performance on the seasonal weather conditions and on the day/night cycle. The fluctuating solar energy availability makes solar energy solutions difficult to control. The energy demand does not always correspond with the solar energy availability. The increasing use of solar energy highly depends on the development of reliable and economically viable storage systems. This work is a contribution to the development of seasonal storage systems of solar heat.
