FAO strengthening institutional capacities for sustainable water management

In recent years, solar powered irrigation systems (SPIS) have become increasingly viable for countries as a reliable, clean-energy solution for agriculture water use, especially in areas with high-incident solar radiation. As investment costs for SPIS decrease, and governments continue to subsidize technology, SPIS are becoming an attractive option for many farmers.

In rural areas, SPIS can be a means of ensuring access to energy for agriculture, specifically for users in rural areas that lack reliable access to electricity or where diesel fuel is expensive. Inefficient irrigation system is the reason for the mismatched demand and supply of ample water to agriculture, however, over extraction of the ground water can quickly deplete the natural resource, and solar powered irrigation could be a solution for that.
