Cost reductions in solar water pumps have the potential to make modern irrigation more accessible and cost-effective for nearly 500 million smallholder farmers globally. Between May 2018 and May 2019, CLASP—acting as co-Secretariat of the Efficiency for Access Coalition—convened a technical working group to construct an industry roadmap for solar water pumps.

This document identifies a series of technology improvements for remote monitoring systems and brushless DC motors that, if adopted, could improve pump efficiency and performance. It also outlines recommendations for future research, including: connectivity, the impact of water quality on durability, quality assurance, and specific in-country barriers. Together, these components form a common starting point for further investment and industry collaboration.
