Rehabilitation of solar water pumping systems (SEAF - Sustainable Energy Advisory Facility, UCCEE - UNEP Collaborating Centre on Energy & Environment)
This project sought to identify organisational and management problems which act as barriers to sustainability in village solar water pumping systems. As can be seen from the photos above, insufficient management means problems with operation - here taps are broken and not replaced, and solar panels have been victim of theft. Good management and appropriate structures can avoid these and other problems, and can help create a genuinely sustainable installation. MFC works with this philosophy in all ts projects. In cooperation with DNHE (National Directorate of Hydraulics & Energy) and CNESOLER (National Centre for Renewable Energy).
