Thermal energy storage

Technologies used for storing energy in a thermal reservoir for later use. For cooling, ice is produced at night to provide daytime cooling, thereby reducing peak daytime electricity demands. For heating, solar collectors are most commonly used to gather heat, which is then stored for later use.
