On behalf of BMZ and EU, the GIZ is pleased to announce a series of Online Training Courses on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems for Advisors.
In the six interactive online Trainings, participants will learn how to use the most relevant Excel-tools of the SPIS-Toolbox. The Toolbox was developed by FAO and GIZ to guide and support advisors, service providers and practitioners who want to
Calculate the water amount needed for irrigation;
Size a suitable pump and the electrical energy needed to supply these pumps;
Advise small-holder farmers and help them to decide whether the use of solar energy is useful from both an economic as well as from an ecological perspective;
Support and inform deciders from the private, financial and institutional sector to install solar-powered irrigation systems.
Target users are advisors, service providers and practitioners in the field of solar irrigation.
At the end of the course, participants should be able to
- use the Excel-tools provided in the Toolbox on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS),
- provide relevant background information on all components of a Solar Powered Irrigation System, and
- provide broad hands-on guidance to end-users, policy-makers and financiers.
