Modular Approach Instead of having one solution, we could have: 1x pump module 1x waterflow power adapter 1x windflow power adapter 1x electric adapter This way the solution can better fit the situation, and if a part wears out you can switch it for a new one easier.

Brief http://greenpeacechallenge.jovoto.com/blog/posts/squaring-the-circle-designing-the-energy-revolution-pump Basically: - Should cost about $1500 USD. - sufficient to irrigate a 1 hectare plot of a typical Bihar produce, pumping groundwater from 5m depth. - must be at least as portable as an “old school” Kirloskar 5HP pump - easy to maintain + durable Extra: - backup power: some other source - extra benefits
Ideas We need ideas for a good solution, or direction to explore
Powersource What kind of powersource is possible. It should be renewable and not hinder the pump to be portable.
