Water pumping is a big job. Solar electric (PV) powered water pumps are the most effective way to pump your Deep Well, or shallow pond, river, lake or stream with high performance, reliability, and no fuel-costs. Is your Well, Pond, or Lake at a remote site? Solar electric photovoltaic (PV) panels, at historic low prices, lower costs and can be your water pumping solution. Water your livestock, irrigate your orchards, gardens, fields, or farmlands with this Easy Step-by-Step Guide complete with specific examples of water pumping equipment for different situations. Pump water from your well, or shallow surface source directly with Solar PV panels. Size your solar water pumping system with this Step-by-Step Guide to defining, and building your solar water pumping project. Solar water pumping systems include solar PV panels, a controller, and the Pump itself. The examples included in this book match the model pump, with the solar power supply required to produce a given average water production per day.
Solar power for pumping groundwater has a vast potential for improving the sustainability of water supply schemes. However experience also shows that a lack of knowledge, capacity and expertise to design and implement such schemes is holding back their adoption. This book bridges this gap to equip engineers and technicians with the requisite knowledge for design, implementation and operation of sustainable solar powered water schemes.Solar Pumping for Water Supply is a state of the art review of solar water pumping technology combined with practical insights, lessons and best practices drawn from experience. It takes the reader step by step through the different phases that comprise a solar water pumping project, namely: assessment, design, purchase of equipment, installation, operation and management. The book also covers the economics of using solar pumping technology, especially when compared to diesel generators and hand pumps. Finally, the social aspects are included, specifically relating to the operation and management of solar pumping systems and the role that beneficiaries, implementers, government and the private sector might play to ensure long-lasting water supply. The book provides links and references to tools, documents and videos to accompany the content of the different chapters.Essential reading for solar technical practitioners at NGOs, UN agencies, government offices and private sector, including Global and Regional Technical advisors and Field engineers wanting to understand and know how to design water systems using solar power. A basic knowledge in the field of water supply is assumed, but no previous knowledge of solar photovoltaic technology is required.Alberto Ibáñez Llario is a Global Solar and Water Advisor with the International Organization for Migration and has 15 years of experience in water systems and solar PV in various locations around the world.Asenath Kiprono is a solar water pumping expert with 12 years' experience in design and implementation of pumping systems in rural Africa, including solar pumping systems in the private, public and humanitarian sectors.

Pumping water is a universal need and a major energy challenge, especially where electrical service is absent, expensive or unreliable. Water demands are greatest when the sun shines most intensely. Could there be a better power source for pumping, than the sunshine itself? Over a million solar pumps are already in use for irrigation, livestock, pond and stream management, water treatment, homes and communities, emergency relief, government and recreational facilities, and more. They are rapidly replacing hand pumps, engines, windmills, and even public grid power. To succeed, designers, suppliers, funders and owners need to understand the unique aspects of this technology. This comprehensive and unique volume fills a major gap in the literature on this rapidly-growing industry. Three pioneering authors share over 80 years of combined solar pumping experience in private, public and educational sectors. They describe the theory and practice of solar pumping, including small, medium and large scale approaches, for the developing and the developed world. The book covers solar power, pump and control technologies, system sizing and design, storage and back-up, installation, operation and maintenance, and remote connectivity. It presents accessibility solutions for small farms and villages, as well as advice for involving communities, business, NGOs and financial institutions, based on the diverse experience of the authors. Examples with full colour illustrations and photos are included throughout. Real world case studies are presented from around the world, including Africa, Asia and the US, plus a ten-year follow-up study of more than 200 systems in Mexico. Overall, the volume will serve as a standard reference for years to come.

The combination of heat pumps and solar components is a recent development and has great potential for improving the energy efficiency of house and hot water heating systems. As a consequence, it can enhance the energy footprint of a building substantially. This work compares different systems, analyses their performance and illustrates monitoring techniques. It helps the reader to design, simulate and assess solar and heat pump systems. Good examples of built systems are discussed in detail and advice is given on how to design the most efficient system. This book is the first one about this combination of components and presents the state of the art of this technology. It is based on a joint research project of two programmes of the International Energy Agency: the Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC) and the Heat Pump Programme. More than 50 experts from 13 countries have participated in this research.
