    Solar powered water lifting - For Irrigation in the Nile Delta

    In the Nile Delta, Egypt, irrigation canals are frequently located below ground level, necessitating the use of pumps to lift water to the fields. This pumping is dependent on the use of fossil fuels, directly with diesel and indirectly with electricity. Recently, the agricultural sector is facing an energy crisis, as increasing electricity demand from urban areas results in frequent shortages and blackouts. This results in disrupting the regular irrigation scheduling to satisfy the crop-water requirements with the consequence of crop yields decline. In addition, the cost of pumping is expected to increse. Therefore, a low-cost alternative source of energy is required to ensure farmers have a reliable system to pump and irrigate.
