BOS AG: Myanmar Li + Pb Mini-Grid
BOS AG (Balance of Storage Systems AG) are a supplier of products and services for off-grid energy solutions. Based in Neu-Ulm near Munich in Germany and founded in 2014, the aim of this young company is to become a leader in decentralised energy supply. Their focus is on Li-Pb (lithium-lead) hybrid charging technology for solar systems which support intelligent load management.
As BOS use Victron Energy products in their systems it was good to hear from one of their staff and to gain insight into how Victron products are integrated into their solutions.
Here then is a guest blog, by Veeresh Anehosur of BOS, about a mini-grid on Kenti island in the Mergui Archipelago.

BOS Balance of Storage Systems AG is entering the Honduran energy market. Through its pilot projects they are installing the first solar storage systems that have been specially adapted for the Latin American market. As part of the Renewable Energy Solutions (RES) programme of the German Energy Agency (dena), the young company from Bavaria, along with its local partner Innovative Business Solutions (IBS), has installed five of its HS business10 systems in hotels and town halls. Each of the all-in-one systems has 10240Wh of lithium storage and the solar electronics required.
The succesful mini grid and micro utility projects are technically robust, commercially attractive and sustainable in long-term. One such minigrid was installed in Nigeria in the sprawling Sabon Gari market (Kano) with 1.6 MWp of PV with 1.6MWhr Lithium storage from BOS AG.
