Solar energy collectors are devices employed to gain useful heat energy from the incident solar radiation. They can be of the concentrating or the flat-plate type. A simple flat-plate solar energy collector consists basically of an absorbing surface which absorbs the insolation and transmits it (in the form of heat) to a working fluid (commonly air or water).
