The project aims at introducing to the Moldovan agricultural producers an innovative technology on autonomous irrigation systems based on non-traditional energy source, demonstrating good practices and provide testing grounds for usage of renewable energy sources in irrigation applications.
- The project objective is to create drip or sprinkler irrigation systems integrated with energy conversion systems (wind, hydro and solar photovoltaic) and computerized intelligent and interactive control allowing to manage simultaneously irrigation, fertilization and phytosanitary treatments application processes. Usage of such technology will contribute to reducing long-term energy dependency of irrigation systems users, reducing the cost of agricultural production and ultimately provide an example and opportunity for producers to become environmentally more responsible or "green".
- The transition to renewable energy sources (wind, hydro, solar) in agricultural processes will reduce the needs for usage of fossil fuels and power supplies;
- Contribution to an increased competitiveness of the Moldovan agricultural products.
