Design challenge seeks portable, renewables-powered alternative to diesel water pump

October 1, 2013

A new open design challenge is looking for viable alternatives to the dirty diesel pumps that provide irrigation water for off-grid farmers in India.

Susan Davis Cushing‘s insight:

via Tom Cooley: “It’s particularly exciting for me to see this Greenpeace pump design challenge, since a few years ago I was considering holding a pump design challenge of my own to come up with pumps which would work for aquaponics systems in developing countries where there is no electrical grid. Looking forward to seeing what the contest entrants come up with!
