Jinko Suntera – a smart liquid cooled energy storage solution for Africa

  • JinkoSolar, a world leader in solar pv technology and,  has introduced its new generation SunTera liquid cooled utility-scale energy storage system.
  • The SunTera system is a powerful solution for applications including peak-shaving, microgrid and demand management, and aims to overcome the challenges presented by a mismatch between energy demand and generation.

The system is designed to exceed normal safety standards, with a thermal management feature to ensure temperature uniformity within the cabinet and multiple layers of safety enhancement solutions, including an active anti-explosion ventilation system, early detection and alarm in the event of abnormalities and a fire suppression system and water injection unit.

The compact pre-assembled nature of the system simplifies the installation process and reduces associated costs by up to 30%, with intelligent O&M provided via JinkoSolar’s own software hub, an advanced monitoring and control platform for large-scale utility projects and micro grids.

Key features of SunTera Liquid Cooling ESS:

  • Intelligent Liquid Cooling: – Incorporates multiple liquid cooling control modes, resulting in a notable 20% reduction in auxiliary power consumption.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: – Employs cluster-level management, leading to a remarkable RTE improvement of over 1%.
  • Safety and Reliability: – Provides comprehensive five-level protection, safeguarding the cells and preventing the propagation of thermal incidents. – Features an explosion-proof design, complemented by gas and water fire suppression systems.
  • Smart Operations and Maintenance: – Implements intelligent control management for optimized performance, efficient debugging, and reduced operational costs. – Designed with a three-sided maintenance approach, achieving a high energy density of 6.88MWh within a compact 40-foot space.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
