Reliable power, functioning energy infrastructure and independence from diesel generators. This is what many Hondurans want and need to keep their businesses, institutions, and homes running. With our solar storage systems, we provide a solution that meets their needs. Together with our local partner Innovative Business Solutions (IBS) and as a part of the dena Renewable Energy Solutions Programme, we have chosen five pilot locations in the country to demonstrate our technology. Three hotels and two municipalities now run with a BOS solar storage system. The results: Lower electricity bills, uninterrupted power supply and cleaner air.
Electrifying Health Posts
Health care in rural African regions is a big challenge. The focus in this project was on clinics which are off-grid, very remote and take care of many communities.
People depend on the health posts and often have to walk many miles to get medical help. No power affected Lukolongo as well as Chisakila, Mbimbe and Munyeo in Zambia. With BOS Hybrid Systems all four health posts and the doctor housing get power for lights, fans and the ability to store medicines and vaccinations in a refrigerator. With electrification, a first important step was set for quality medical care and to support the communities.

BOS Hybrid Storage Systems
Making the world and people’s lives a bit better is what drives us and what we do every day with our projects. Get to know many more of our projects in countries all over the world with different climates, cultures and people.
The existing health station of Kanungu was in a very poor condition. Simple birth complications, fractures, and infectious diseases often led to death. A state-private initiative turned it into a fully functioning
hospital. Thanks to our energy storage systems, all necessary loads can be handled, especially for operations like autoclave, vacuum pumps, electrosurgical
cutters, anesthesia equipment, and surgical lights. For secure energy supply, BOS energy systems combine electricity
from solar energy, the main power grid, and a diesel generator. This project shows that even in remote areas a very
high medical level is possible.
The remote island of Kenti is a hub of fisheries export. The only available power access on the island was from a diesel genset. Since diesel runs for four hours per day, cold storing was almost impossible. In 2017 after a World Bank investment, a solar-diesel mini grid was built. However, power capacity was soon not enough. So, BOS AG supplemented the lead-acid mini grid with BOS lithium storage systems into a hybrid solution. Today, with its extended capacity and a whole optimized system, the diesel generator is used only as a bad-weather backup and 340 households are supplied with electricity around the clock.
The passionate sailor Peter Reinmann extended his lead acid energy storage of his 9.30 meter long sailing catamaran with two BOS LiFePO4 Lithium modules. Peter is thus able to operate all the on-board electronics such as navigation, radio, light, refrigerator and gas heating. Because there was no room under the bench seat for a larger supply battery, a LE300 hybrid system was the perfect solution without loosing too much space. Now he is able to enjoy longer trips on the water without returning for recharge. A freedom that he no longer wants to miss.
