Global inverter and energy storage solution supplier Sungrow is partnering with renewable energy specialist Super Energy to construct the largest solar-plus-storage project in Southeast Asia. The project comprises a 49 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic (PV) inverter solution and a 45 MW/136.24MWh battery energy storage system (EES). This will improve the stability of the power grid and support Thailand’s progress toward achieving carbon neutrality. The Southeast Asian country aims at achieving 2,766 MW of renewable energy capacity in its power generation mix, as highlighted in its Power Development Plan 2018-2037.
Importantly, this project launched a new chapter for Sungrow’s long-term strategic progress in Southeast Asia’s solar and energy storage sector. It has provided its liquid-cooled ESS PowerTitan for the project, which integrates power electronics, electrochemistry, and power grid support technologies for increased safety and durability while reducing the expenses of delivery and installation. The solution comes with liquid-cooled thermal management, which ensures a longer lifespan for the ESS. The technology also comes with a DC-DC controller, allowing battery racks to charge and discharge individually. The battery cabinet and the PCS enclosure allow the energy storage system to harvest solar power without derating in the changing weather in Thailand. The company has also integrated self-developed intelligent energy management and monitoring systems within the project.
