High operating temperatures induce a loss of efficiency in solar photovoltaic and thermal modules. This paper investigates the used of phase-change materials (PCM) to maintained the temperature of the modules close to ambient. The huge amount of solar energy has reached to the earth can be provided electric energy by photo voltaic (pv) module. The solar pv module has a exciting technology but suffer from the low efficiency. So to improve the efficiency of the photo voltaic module it is used passive cooling with the help of heat technique. In this way, the temperature of solar cell could be effectively reduced to improved the efficiency of power generation and the heat dissipation of solar module could be minimized through the phase change material as it absorb the heat from the pv module and stored in the reservoir.
