Abstract—Solar-driven organic Rankine cycle (ORC) has been drawing increasing attention due to its high potential in energy conversion efficiency. The two core components of thermal application systems of solar energy are solar collectors and thermal energy storage systems, and many studies have been published. ORC also has attracted much attention in recent years due to its potential in reducing consumption of fossil fuels, relaxing environmental problems, and its favorable characteristics to exploit low-temperature heat sources. This paper provides a review of the latest developments and advances in solar thermal applications of solar collectors and thermal energy storage systems, and solar-driven ORC systems. Various types of solar collector systems and solar ORC systems, and their working fluids are reviewed and discussed.

Index Terms—solar collector, heat storage, organic rankine cycle (ORC), working fluid
