In order to restrain the trend of present fossil fuel consumption, latent heat thermal storage (LHTS) using phase change material (PCM) has been received a common interest among scientists as it has high energy storage capacity. In this chapter, LHTS system and their applications for solar thermal power generation and building application have been discussed. The prospect of LHTS in reducing present fossil fuel consumption also has been demonstrated. Moreover, the recent development of PCM has been reported for practical LHTS application.
