Fossil fuels are exhaustible and their consumption causes environmental problems. As a result, renewable energy resources, specifically solar energy, should be utilized more to overcome the aforementioned issues. The biggest problem with renewable energy utilization is that their capital cost is very high. To tackle this problem, renewable energies should be coupled with conventional energy systems to lower the initial investment. In this paper, a parabolic trough collector is coupled with a conventional Rankine cycle to increase output power of the system by replacing its closed feedwater heaters. Also, to be able to use the system during the nights, a thermal storage system is added to the cycle. A complete energy, exergy and economic analyses are performed on the system and the results are compared with the base case condition. The results show that by using the proposed system, net generated power of the plant increases by 8.14%. Also, exergy analysis shows that in both cases boiler has the highest rate of exergy destruction. In general, due to huge amount of losses in the collector, exergy efficiency of the system decreases. Finally, economic analysis shows that simple payback time of the system equals to 1.5 years which is very low.

Micro-CHP systems are designed to reduce energy consumption in the present era. In this study, micro-CHP systems with a solar-powered Stirling engine are designed for use in similar buildings in three different climates of Iran. These solar systems are highly dependent on weather conditions in different cities. Modeling and optimizing to reduce costs, the economic dimension of the system, increasing energy storage and reducing the amount of emissions, especially CO2, have been achieved and acceptable results have been obtained.

Negative environmental impact of fossil fuel consumption highlight the role of renewable energy sources and give them a unique opportunity to grow and improve. Among renewable energy sources solar energy attract more attention and many studies have focused on using solar energy for electricity generation. Here, in this study, solar energy technologies are reviewed to find out the best option for electricity generation. Using solar energy to generate electricity can be done either directly and indirectly. In the direct method, PV modules are utilized to convert solar irradiation into electricity. In the indirect method, thermal energy is harnessed employing concentrated solar power (CSP) plants such as Linear Fresnel collectors and parabolic trough collectors. In this paper, solar thermal technologies including soar trough collectors, linear Fresnel collectors, central tower systems, and solar parabolic dishes are comprehensively reviewed and barriers and opportunities are discussed. In addition, a comparison is made between solar thermal power plants and PV power generation plants. Based on published studies, PV‐based systems are more suitable for small‐scale power generation. They are also capable of generating more electricity in a specific area in comparison with CSP‐based systems. However, based on economic considerations, CSP plants are better in economic return.
