The world is witnessing a fast growth in using the different renewable energy resources, mainly: solar energy (thermal and PV), wind energy, marine energy, geothermal energy, and energy produced from biomass. As described in previous publications [1], energy storage systems must store energy generated from different renewable sources to be used when needed. In this prospect, it was emphasized on the role of energy storage systems and their relation with renewable energy production. Also, more details were provided on the main energy storage techniques, such as: magnetic systems, electrochemical systems, mechanical systems, hydro systems, etc. The author has presented the basic guideline of selecting the energy storage systems, depends on many factors, such as: renewable energy sources, location, infrastructure, etc.
