There are two main types of solar energy.

Solar Thermal - Used for heating water

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) - Used for producing electricity

Solar Thermal is very prevalent in the Leisure industries where

a steady stream of hot water is required for showers etc.

Solar Photovoltaic systems are used on homes as they can produce

enough electricity to power most household appliances, during

daylight hours.

There are also solar torches and solar lights.

These work by storing the electricity during the day where you

are then able to use it at night.
