Due to increasing oil production and accelerating global warming, the need to develop clean, sustainable, and inexpensive energy supplies is growing. Currently, however, renewable energy sources can be more expensive in the short-term than nonrenewables, and little electricity is produced from solar energy or wind power.

A hybrid wind and solar energy system with battery energy. One such example is the integration of wind turbines into solar hybrid power systems, as wind tends to complement solar because the peak operating times for each system occur at different times of the day and year. Wind is created by the unequal heating of the earths surface by the sun. Enercon works to design storage systems that work to your unique needs whether frequency regulation, var support, load shifting or backup power. To establish solid classification of solar collectors the following research has been done.

Many innovative technologies have been developed around the world to meet its energy demands using renewable and nonrenewable resources. Solar energy is one of the most important emerging renewable energy resources in recent times. This study aims to present the state-of-the-art of parabolic trough solar collector technology with a focus on different thermal performance analysis methods and components used in the fabrication of collector together with different construction materials and their properties. Further, its industrial applications such as heating, cooling, or concentrating photovoltaics , solar energy conversion processes, and technological advancements in these areas are discussed.
The size of wind turbines varies widely. The length of the blades is the biggest factor in determining the amount of electricity a wind turbine can generate. Small wind turbines that can power a single home may have an electricity generating capacity of 10 kilowatts kW.
Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time  to reduce imbalances between energy demand and energy production. A device that stores energy is generally called an accumulator or battery. Energy comes in multiple forms including radiation, chemical , gravitational potential , electrical potential , electricity, elevated temperature, latent heat and kinetic. Energy storage involves converting energy from forms that are difficult to store to more conveniently or economically storable forms.
