It is widely believed that solar powered solutions will play a critical role in achieving the UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those that are related to rural water supply. However, unless solar powered water systems (SPWS) are implemented and supported effectively, the technology’s benefits will not be realized and existing challenges will only be amplified.

Project Description


1. Address common misconceptions regarding solar powered water systems.
2. Raise awareness about, and increase utilization of, existing standards and reference materials.
3. Ultimately improve the sustainability and impact of solar powered water systems.

Professionals with technical and non-technical backgrounds who are involved, or considering involvement, in planning, managing, or monitoring water supply programs that utilize solar powered pumps. Advanced understanding of electro-mechanical pumping systems not required.
