Solar energy is the perfect alternative to diesel generators for water pumping irrigation system. TCI GreenAnswer converts your existing pump from running on diesel generators to solar energy. This system is proven to give long-term savings on energy costs and security from diesel’s price volatility and unreliable supply in more than 30 countries. The Off-Grid Solar Water Pumping System is designed to operate AC/DC motor pumps reaching from 1HP to 100HP. This battery-free solution is patented and cost-competitive with diesel generators. Developed especially for off-grid desert locations, this product adapts to the power needs of submersible pumps/surface pumps and can be easily scaled up to meet changing energy demands; enabling the lifting of water at increasing depth levels. With every installation the client has access to the Solar Management Interface and TCI GreenAnswer provides lifecycle support of the system including performance checks and maintenance training.

‘Smart solar pump’ solution gains foothold in India

In Karnataka state in arid southwest India, the local electric company is required to buy back surplus solar power from farmers – similar to programs in parts of Germany, Japan and the United States.

The buyback policy, signed by Karnataka’s governor last September, is consistent with recommendations by scientists at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) to treat solar power as a ‘cash crop.’ The rationale is that if farmers can make money by selling excess power, they then will have an economic incentive to irrigate their crops efficiently, thus helping to conserve groundwater and energy use.

 

Subsidy reform: UAE hikes petrol prices 24 percent but cuts diesel

For the first time since 2009, the UAE is expected to post a budget deficit of 2.3 percent of GDP or around $9bn

 

The United Arab Emirates will hike the retail price of petrol by 24 percent, a government committee announced on Tuesday.

From Saturday, the price per litre of gasoline at the pump will be 2.14 dirhams ($0.58), which the committee said will still be low by international standards.

However, diesel prices will be cut by 29 percent to 2.05 dirhams ($0.56).

The committee said the prices will be adjusted each month.
