About Powering Agriculture

Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development supports the development and deployment of clean energy innovations that increase agriculture productivity and stimulate low carbon economic growth in the agriculture sector of developing countries to help end extreme poverty and extreme hunger.

Powering Agriculture Founding Partner GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) GmbH is happy to announce the launch of more than ten videos on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS) at the Powering Agriculture YouTube channel.

The videos were made possible through Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development (PAEGC).

The videos assist in finding the right site for the system, installing a pump, choosing the right financial model, and maintaining the irrigation system. These videos complement the Toolbox on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems, which provides advisors, service providers and solar irrigation practitioners the tools they need to give broad, hands-on guidance to irrigation end-users, policy-makers and financiers. The Toolbox includes user-friendly calculations sheets, checklists and guidelines.
