Save fuel costs, use sunlight to pump water
At a time when rumours are rife that diesel fares will be hiked, the need of innovations like solar water pumping solutions gets stronger and concerned government departments should make sure that innovators get the required help to develop these water pumping solutions on a large scale.

THE DEMAND for renewable energy resources is at an all-time high and non-renewable energy sources are depleting rapidly. To catch up with the demand, India is also planning to produce 20 gigawatts of solar power by 2020. Though nobody knows how much they can harness it but innovators at Cyber motion technologies are already playing their part by developing a unique solar water pumping solutions.

Cyber motion technologies, for this innovation, has been selected as one of the top innovators of the FICCI-DST-Lockheed Martin India Innovation Growth Program 2012.

Though solar pumps work only when solar energy is at its peak but this patented technology works even during early morning. “What is unique about is that it can pump water almost from early morning till late afternoon. Other solar water pumping solutions will require special pumps or they will only pump while there is peak solar (light),” Praveen Jambholkar Co-innovator, informed in a India Innovation Growth Program 2012 video in Anand, Gujarat.

Though a large part of India still lives without electricity, therefore this technology could be very beneficial for such areas. But for that to happen, innovators need the help of Department of Science and Technology (DST) and FICCI.

“We will be needing FCCI's help and the department of science and technolgies help to scale up the production and to increase our reach to various parts of India where we can implement this solution,” Mr Jambholkar added.

The innovation can also be used in urban areas where fuel costs are touching the sky. And if the diesel prices are hiked, the need of these pumping solutions becomes more stronger.
