Conventional desalination techniques involves the use of electricity generated from sources like coal. Solar still provides a suitable alternative to conventional techniques. But conventional single basin have low distillate output and high heat losses. This paper is a review of design of double basin solar still integrated with Peltier module for optimizing the heat transfer processes involved in solar desalination and also reducing the amount of heat losses. It also gives a study of natural parameters affecting output of a solar still and compares the output of single and double basin solar still.
