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.
Katate Health Center
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 target is to electrify twelve markets by 2019 equipped with BOS Systems. As part of this project, 450 stores in the Iponri market in Lagos now benefit from a renewable and stable power supply. Businesses are mainly souvenir shops, electronic products, tailoring, financial and printing services. With remote monitoring functions, all important system information and energy consumption can be read. PAYG makes it possible for
customers to book their current
contracts in advance on there mobile phone or in the service center. The prices for the shop owner are well below the costs of the old diesel generators.
Sabon Gari market has been often in the headlines because of big fires, that destroyed large parts of the market. The root cause was the usage of many diesel generators. The Nigerian government and various companies have jointly come up with a solution. Equipped with the BOS Systems all 12,000 shops receive green, stable and affordable power for lamps, fans, television, computer and mobile phones. More markets have followed.
