There are constant efforts to minimize the energy load by using phase change materials (PCM). The development of PCM has reached a stage where the applications can be planned with desirable properties. Together with development of PCM strategies one parallel area is slowly growing, which is the use of PCM and its nanocomposites for tapping solar energy in addition to the existing photovoltaic solar cells. There are some efforts to commercialize the technologies. More and more efforts are being done to store the thermal energy by using molecular strategies. The present paper discusses some of the developments in the area of tapping light energy for generation of heat and its storage.
