Tackling heat: the importance of liquid cooling in hybrid solar-storage projects


With the rapid development of renewable energy technologies, the proportion of solar, wind and other renewable energy in the electrical systems of countries all over the world is increasing. Accordingly, the demand for energy storage systems is also rising.

Until now, the vast majority of battery storage systems have used HVAC for air cooling and direct parallel connection of multiple battery racks to increase energy density. This has led to numerous problems, such as high auxiliary power consumption, inefficient heat dissipation and severe barrel effect, resulting in lower than anticipated project revenue.

Sungrow and PV Tech hosted a webinar on the subject of using liquid-cooled battery energy storage systems in solar-storage projects.

This webinar covered:

  • An introduction to Sungrow’s global BESS footprint
  • The current problems and challenges for battery energy storage systems
  • The design and key benefits of liquid cooled battery energy storage systems
  • An understanding of how a liquid cooled battery energy storage system improves project economics, increases system equipment life and increases project revenue
  • An explanation of the operational principles of DC coupled liquid cooled battery energy storage systems
