This module summarizes necessary steps for the installation of the Solar Powered Irrigation System. The installation of an irrigation system requires planning and decision-making by the producer, as the system should be set up according to set preferences and operation requirements. This module contains the relevant process steps to be taken to finally set up the system. In this module it is assumed that the technology provider is not necessarily the service provider for the installation of the SPIS.
This module provides an introduction to the complexities surrounding irrigation.
Solar photovoltaic (solar PV) electricity has recently become the lowest cost source of electricity in most parts of the world. Solar PV supports a socially just and acceptable energy transition and integrated applications, as well as new business opportunities. This report is focusing on one of these new business opportunities. It aims at describing the added value of Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) for a successful energy transition in European cities, as well as the related opportunities for EU businesses. It describes the regulatory and market framework needed for sustainable business models for BIPV, that are adapted to city planning constraints and specificities.
