Abstract: 
Problems of heat transfer intensification in a thermal energy storage module (TES) with a phase-change material for solar power system in the Moon are considered. Low lunar gravitation is taked into account. Natural convection is considered as a main heat transfer mechanism. TES design recomendation are also given.
