Utilization of solar energy for multiple applications is an integral part of sustainable development primarily due to its abundance and potential to offset fossil fuel consumption. The booming field of solar energy enables the solar energy utilization, and open new opportunities within commercial and research development programs. Emphasis has been given to the new development of novel technologies that are more efficient for capturing, storing and utilizing solar energy that can store thermal energy at high temperature and across a wide temperature range. Also, the coupling of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and storage systems presents a significant potential to improve the capture, utilization and storage of solar energy which enhances the reliability of alternative energy options and diversifying away from fossil fuels to mitigate environmental impacts while ensuring the continuous provision of power to meet the growing demand. This paper gives an insight into the recent progress (within the last few years) in the research and development of integrated solar energy systems and their potential to improve the efficiency of integrated solar systems through the utilization of nanotechnologies. This review provides an update on integrated solar energy systems for scientists, students and industrial organizations working in the field.
