|Description||New Delhi: Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture of public sector undertakings under the power ministry, has been selected by the International Solar Alliance (ISA) to facilitate the implementation of 500,000 solar water pumping systems. These pumping systems would be rolled out in ISA member countries that are participating in its Scaling of Solar Application for Agricultural Use programme, aimed at promoting decentralised solar applications for agricultural and rural use. “We look forward to replicating the success of our ongoing solar projects and agricultural pumps programme in the member countries of ISA. We will leverage the wealth of our experience in implementing large-scale energy-efficiency and renewable energy programmes in India and combine that experience with ISA’s long-term vision,” said Rajneesh Rana, general manager at EESL. He said the aim of the initiative is to help farmers get easy and affordable day-time access to irrigation and added that this was a major step towards decentralised power solutions and reducing carbon emission. ISA, an alliance of more than 121 countries, has aggregated demand for these pumping systems from 13 members. EESL would be responsible for the implementation of ISAs latest programme in the participating countries such as India, Bangladesh, Sudan, Uganda, Senegal, and Mauritius, among others. ISA and EESL expect to bring down the cost of solar water pumping systems to scale up the programme and encourage other member countries. Through this, members would also be able to implement the project effectively from in-built monitoring mechanisms and thereby, develop large number of local employment opportunities within the country. EESL is implementing multiple energy-efficiency projects across sectors including LED, smart-meters, streetlights, solarisation of agricultural feeders, solar lamps, agricultural pump sets, and electric vehicles.|
