Solar powered products and solutions, empowering access to water
The Sustainable Development Goal number 6 has the goal to ensure access to water and sanitation for all.
While substantial progress has been made in increasing access to clean drinking water and sanitation, billions of people—mostly in rural areas—still lack these basic services. A few numbers that underline the importance of this goal. Worldwide:
- 1 in 3 people do not have access to safe drinking water
- 1 in 4 health care facilities lacks basic water services
- 3 in 10 people lack access to safely managed drinking water services and 6 in 10 people lack access to safely managed sanitation facilities.
- Each day, nearly 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrheal diseases
- Water scarcity affects more than 40 % of the global population and is projected to rise
Solarkiosk is using and distributing it’s solar powered, water related products and solutions. By Implementing its products and Solutions, the company has realized projects such as:
Solar powered water pumping
Africa has been dealing with some of the most severe droughts it has ever seen as the world continues to report hotter and hotter temperatures year on year, as a result of climate change. More than 30% of Africa’s population is dealing with the issue of water scarcity. By using our solar powered water pumping systems, we were able to empower off-grid communities with access to (live saving) safe drinking water.
Solar powered water purification
In such regions and communities, where there are sources of surface water or ground water, that are contaminated and not save for consumption, the solar power integrated E-HUBB from Solarkiosk can be fitted out with filtration and Reserve Osmosis technology and UV technology into its architecture, to provide access to the de-contaminated, safe drinking water for the whole community.
Water monitoring systems
Our integrated monitoring systems help water business, project teams, technicians and maintenance teams to have an integrated, convenient and reliable point of access for technical information on your solar powered water system.
The solution is able to integrate various data points and give information on:
- the solar system
- the water system
and it can integrate other sensors in order to measure whatever you need to know on your project.
