Global LEAP Awards - Finalist 2019

Let us celebrate!

ennos has been awarded as Global LEAP 2019 Solar Water Pump Competition Finalist!


We are very excited to announce that the sunlight pump is among the best-in-class solar water pumps on the market in the category 10-30m3/day. We celebrate the recognition of our work and are proud to bring a high quality, reliable solar water pump to farmers and households in Africa, Asia and Latin America. 

Global Leap Awards programs are a key entry point for new technologies in emerging markets. The Award is an international competition to identify and promote the world’s best off-grid appliances. ennos participated in the Solar Water Pump competition 2019. 

All nominated solar water pumps went through testing in an independent, accredited laboratory and an evaluation by a panel of off-grid market experts to assess product energy performance, service delivery, quality, reliability, and affordability.

When developing the pump, we focused on achieving a very high efficiency, taking into account various configurations and settings. High efficiency means fewer PV modules to buy. In addition, we have made sure that the product is very robust, has very few wearing parts and has a very long service life. As there are no operational costs and minimum maintenance costs, there is a high return on investment over the lifespan of the sunlight pump. It is the right choice for anyone who wants to turn a free source of energy into time and money savings.

We are pleased to share with you the data collected by Global Leap Awards in the “Surface Solar Water Pump Category”. The high efficiency and the flexibility in the head (tested up to 60 meters)  set us apart from the competition. We are the only pump in the test with full capacity at 20 m total height, which is twice the hydraulic energy of any other competitor. Additional functions such as our fully integrated system approach, our free Android app for on-site performance monitoring and data collection and our online configurator tool for an optimized system design are available only from ennos.

How the sunlight pump stands out from its competitors

ennos will continue working on new pump technologies designed for the needs of smallholder families and communities in off-grid areas. Together with our partners, we distribute environmentally friendly, reliable and affordable pumping solutions. The sunlight pump turns sunrays into savings and impacts the lives of people who need easier, more reliable access to water.
