Cape Verde: Wind Power + Water Desalination = Win!

Water scarcity is a significant and rapidly growing problem throughout much of the world, and one which has no easy solutions. How do you increase the quantity of available fresh water enough to keep up with the demands of a fast-growing human population? One of the only real solutions is through saltwater desalinization — but that’s a very energy-intensive process. So, how to make it economically viable? Perhaps through the pairing of renewable energy technologies — such as wind turbines — with relevant desalinization technologies? That’s what the creators of the new Wind4Water system think. The new Wind4Water system is — simply put — a pre-engineered, modular, wind-powered means of saltwater desalinization that can be easily deployed around the world, providing desalinization services for considerably cheaper than conventional technologies do.
