Thermal energy storage (TES) system is one of the outstanding technologies available contributes for achieving sustainable energy demand. The energy storage system has been proven capable of narrowing down the energy mismatch between energy supply and demand. The thermal energy storage (TES) - buildings integration is expected to minimize the energy demand shortage and also offers for better energy management in building sector. This paper presents a state of art of the active and passive TES technologies integrated in the building sector. The integration method, advantages and disadvantages of both techniques were discussed. The TES for low energy building is inevitably needed. This study prescribes that the integration of TES system for both active and passive cooling techniques are proven to be beneficial towards a better energy management in buildings.
