XPRIZE announced the results of The Water Abundance XPRIZE powered by Australian Aid and Tata Group during Visioneering 2018. We are very honored to have received this magnificent award, $1.5M Water Abundance XPRIZE. It’s been over two-years of hard work, competing against 97 teams from 27 countries to collect a minimum of 2,000 liters of water per day from the atmosphere using 100 percent renewable energy, at a cost of no more than 2 cents per liter.
WEDEW helps communities plan for and respond to global climate change by providing reliable energy and water, which works no matter how volatile the environment becomes.
WEDEW is a point-of-use system, meaning vulnerable communities are no longer beholden to infrastructure for their water and power. The sustainable exchange of biomass for water around WEDEW can become the cornerstone of local economies.
WEDEW contains everything needed for aid work in a secure, transportable container. It can provide on-demand water and power during emergency events in addition to refrigeration, cooling, and communication. READ MORE ABOUT WEDEW.
