Project CGI Video Released

Wed, 27 March, 2024

Get a closer look at how the IMPHORAA system is changing lives by bringing solar energy and water pumping systems to off grid communities.

The project team have created a video using computer-generated imagery (CGI) showing how the system works, by using solar modules to deliver power to a nanogrid controller, a water pump controller and a circuitry box that is connected by distribution cables.

This system can provide electric lighting, power a refrigeration unit / cool box, and energy can be stored in solar batteries for later use. Distribution cables mean that the energy delivered from the solar panels can offer power for public use too, such as with public lighting, while the cables can also connect several residences to the system so that people can use their own in-house supplies.

In addition, clean, potable water can be provided via a UV purification filter connected to a water pump and four stage filtration system.

The CGI video clearly demonstrates how the IMPHORAA system works and how it is making a real difference to communities in Madagascar and The Philippines.
