Solar Powered Water Systems (SPWS)

The course ‘Solar Powered Water Systems’ (SPWS) introduces the use of photovoltaic (PV) energy solutions for water supply systems. The course describes the different configurations and components used in solar-powered water systems (SPWS) and the criteria used to select, assemble, and use them to provide water through the use of photovoltaic energy. Additionally cost economic comparisons between solar and other pumping technologies are explained.

The different modules are based on real field experience collected through onsite visits in more than 80 refugee camps and communities in 12 developing countries and therefore, it is especially suited for humanitarian and development workers willing to get the necessary expertise to start using SPWS in their projects worldwide.
