Jurgen kleinsachter and Olivier Paccoud demonstrate the Sunpluse 500 as a technology for decentralised autonomous energy supply.

Dear ladies and gentlemen, we herewith submit our proposal for your challenge "Energy [R]evolution: Clean Pumping". The main emphasis of our "SUNPULSE" solar water pump development was to create a robust, efficient and nevertheless simple and reliable system. We have been pioneering the development of low temperature stirling engines for many years.The "SUNPULSE" stirling engine including different sizes (from the SUNPULSE 150 with 150 Watts of hydraulic power to the SUNPULSE 500 and the SUNPULSE 1500) is developed to the laboratory demonstration stage. Our company philosophy includes the license production through selcected partners in the different parts of the world. It is important for us, that such partners are strongly committed to create structures, including stable and human employment serving the rural sector of their respective countries. Please notice also, that the SUNPULSE engine completed with a simple hot water storage bears also the potential of creating local autonomy not only for water pumping but also for small, modular extendible solar power stations to create electricity and mechanical power around the clock.

Have you got other details like...
the efficiency of each energy conversion step
the power & capacity of the solar panel(s) and any batteries
the power of the evacuated tube heating system
the cost of the whole system

would it be better than an equivalent amount of money spent on solar panels and a battery bank?

Serena Aurora : 1st ) Thank you! Thank you ! Thank You!

2nd) You are both a Fellow (Sister) Member here and The Videographer of this phantasmic (British Spelling !)range of Products and potential products!
As such We are going to turn to you !

3rd You have to decide How much more you want to step away from your Simple Ha Ha! Duties as an interested Videographer, and how much you
care to be placed as THE CONTACT PERSON in the eyes of Your Fellow Members

I cant think of a faster way for you to quickly reach total burn-out by taking on the Middle Man duties With both groups expecting you to instantly
become '' The Oracle who Knows all !''

Even though This should quickly grow into a thing please do take your time and seek help !

For the Good of The Crafts ! Big AL

Late Note : For More information on the Products and on Tamara the Intentional community via U-Tube see link Below :

How do these hold up when compared to, for example, a classic windmill pump system?

Windmill Irrigation Pumps

Purchase cost?
Maintenance?
Reliability (presumably limited to daylight hours? Desirable for an agricultural system?)

A windmill is sufficiently simple that most people with some practical experience and tools can maintain them on site.

I eagerly look forward to more specific information about the sunpulse low temperature (delta) stirling engines as soon as anybody gets it.
