Solar-powered irrigation systems: A clean-energy, low-emission option for irrigation development and modernization
This document explains how solar-powered irrigation systems (SPIS) can be integrated and implemented. SPIS are a clean technology option for irrigation, allowing the use solar energy for water pumping, replacing fossil fuels as energy source, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from irrigated agriculture. The sustainability of SPIS greatly depends on how water resources are managed.
