Context of the need:
Minvayu is a social project that wants to help rural areas of India to be electrically self sufficient.
It is developing and adapting open-source technologies to build affordable small wind turbines and also training local mechanics to build, install and maintain them. This can offer a sustainable small business that can be run by local entrepreneurs and create a local energy solution.
Goal: To develop an open-source electronic circuit for direct drive with electric water pumping system.
Duration: Minimum duration is 6 months. It is possible to extend the period if there is the need. ( Non-Indians must be aware of the visa conditions - see our visa pages.)
