What are the differences between solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems?

There is often some confusion between solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems, but they actually have little in common other than the fact that they both use solar irradiation to produce energy. In fact, the two technologies have various differences in terms of use, cost and duration. The main difference, however, lies in the fact that the solar thermal panels produce hot water, while the photovoltaic panels produce electricity.
