"It was like a drop in the ocean. It wasn't sustainable in the long run, this will only work if it pays off." This was Ben's conclusion after five years of work for an aid organisation with the aim to help people by driving forward rural electrification. During a mission in Mozambique, he also became aware of the problems that damaged lead acid batteries cause for the environment there. At that moment an idea for a solution was born and one year later four courageous people founded a new company to take up this vision.

SMART IDEAS. YOUNG HISTORY.

BOS Balance of Storage Systems AG BOS AG has been founded as AG in July 2014 with first investors. BOS aims at becoming the leading company in decentralised energy supply with a focus on Li-Pb (lithium-lead) hybrid charging technology for solar systems that supports intelligent load management. Our key markets are located in rural and semi-urban areas of the world with insufficient access to modern energy services (around 2 billion people do not have access to modern energy services) as well as market segments in industrialized countries that require decentralized power supply (e.g. industrial use in street infrastructure, or private use in holiday homes etc.).


We aim at delivering high quality, state of the art products and want to establish BOS as a brand that is well known for its excellent performance and service. The unique hybrid charging technology, which supports intelligent load management offers our customers a service that cannot be found with any competitor and boosts customers benefit. Storage costs per kWh with BOS hybrid battery management systems are up to eight times cheaper than with other storage technologies. Combined with intelligent load management, the energy service for the customer is more than ten times more attractive.


The founding team of BOS has an excellent mix of experience and dynamic drive. Professor Peter Adelmann brings in over 30 years of experience in the solar sector and in rural electrification – he was the founder and head manager of the Steca solar department and a founder and CEO of Phocos. He is now working as consultant and has extensive know how in charge regulation and start up management. Benjamin Seckinger and Thomas Kündiger are young yet experienced managers and engineers with a background in mechanical and electronic design, rural electrification and start-up management.

Values & objectives: BOS AG is working at the intersection where People, Planet and Profit meet. Optimizing our footprint and the return in each impact area is our strategical objective.

TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE

The triple bottom line model is a core model of sustainability. With it’s help impacts on different levels can be mapped. It forms the central model of the strategy of BOS AG.


Traditional businesses operate on a single bottom line, which shows the profit (or loss) in terms of money. Sustainable ventures include two additional bottom lines, which consider the impacts on people and planet as well. The results of all three bottom lines are equally important, and optimization is pursued in all three areas. This approach is commonly referred to as the triple bottom line, consisting of three Ps, Profit, People and Planet.

BOS AG strives to improve step by step in all three areas of the triple bottom line.
