    Energy Efficient Solar Irrigation Pumps for Bangladesh

    mithilamarufa C4D Enthusiast

      Half of the year they remain unused though each systems are very expensive to afford

      During the monsoon we would like to use them for households or other purposes

      Tie them into Nanogrids or minigrids

      Make the system intelligent

          Well the problem is applicable to wider scope, if you could provide average site details as follows:

          What is Average solar radiation, average wind speed, average depth of water to be pumped, Crop pattern, Alternate fuel replace, Financial incentives ,Availability of Import/Export meter for feeding  Nano Grid or micro grid.

              This is a very interesting and innovative approach for irrigation. Our team is going to set up a lift irrigation system for a village that will benefit more than 60 farmers and irrigate as large as 80 acres of land. Will this solar irrigation system be effective in such a project? What will be the expenses?

              This is a good and environmental friendly method which can provide irrigation to many places where electricity is not available. I am eager to know about the details, if you could provide it to me.

              Thank you so much.

                  Our mission is to Create Livable Earth by measuring, managing, minimizing  and mitigating anthropogenic emission with managed solutions, due to high energy intensity use by corporates.

                  Sure, If natural resource data of village with current pattern of farming are available, we can provide required output.  In most projects,  resource balance sheet is undermined. If water withdrawals are balanced with water deposit, water issue will diminish in long run. In Indian context rainwater is crucial if conserved for drier periods.

                  Solar is costly affair, still promoted, only after leakages of energy  in current usage are plugged. Wind is cheaper than solar with better output. Depending on your location measure, manage, mitigate pyramid can be applied. In this case mitigation would be replacing current energy use by solar/wind.

                  Hope this helps.

                We @claroenergy have installed several systems where the beneficiary is able to use the solar pumps for domestic use as well (if field and house are very close).  Also we have been successful in developing solar pump trolleys (2HP/1.8kW or smaller) that can be moved from one field to another and can be used for different purposes. We are looking to enter into Bangladesh and are at an early stage of market assessment.
