Summary Many rockbed thermal storage systems were installed in solar homes and greenhouses in Australia during the 1970s and 1980s. However, this technology appears to have waned in popularity since that time, although other storage options such as phase change materials are still not established alternatives. This paper re-evaluates rockbed storage technology, in the light of the experiences of users over the last 20 years. Of the 31 systems investigated, only seven were determined to be still working. There are a number of reasons for this, depending on the type and use of the system, which are discussed.
