This study introduces the solar chimney power technology, which is a solar thermal energy system. One of the renewable energy resources, this system is an energy transformation system in which solar energy and wind energy are used together. In this system, the air that is heated with solar energy ensures the production of electric energy by moving upwards with the suction effect of the chimney and rotating the turbine that is placed inside the chimney. In this review, the main principles and characteristics of this system are discussed and the developments on the experimental and theoretical investigations carried out with regard to the solar chimneys around the world especially in recent years are shared with the readers. With the study, it is aimed to provide up-to-date information to readers who are interested in this subject.
