DRINKing It in: Five Teams and Their Desalination Designs Earn a Spot in Final Stage of Waves to Water Prize Competition

This month, DOE and NREL officially announced the five teams that earned a spot in the fifth and final competition stage, DRINK. Now, these five have 180 days to prepare their devices for an open-ocean trial at the Coastal Studies Institute in North Carolina in April 2022.

Advancements in Desalination Using Solar Energy

Solar energy has a large potential as a renewable desalination energy source because of its abundance on Earth. Furthermore, advances in solar-wind hybrid desalination systems will be looked at, that demonstrate high efficiency and low carbon emissions as well.

GivePower Deploys Solar Water Farms in Kenya and Haiti

Powered entirely by solar energy and battery storage, GivePower's desalination systems are housed in 20 foot shipping containers and capable of transforming 70,000 liters of brackish and/or seawater into clean, healthy drinking water every day.

NEOM Adopts Pioneering Solar Dome Technology for Sustainable Desalination Project

"Smart" approach to desalination harnesses solar power for water extraction, significantly lowering production costs and reducing brine discharge.

Solar Desalination Shows Promising Results for the Developing World

Scientists may have created a solution that will allow people in developed and developing countries to make drinkable water out of otherwise unpotable seawater through a process called solar desalination.

NREL to Lead $5 Million Initiative to Reduce Energy Use and Increase Energy Efficiency of Major Transportation Hub

Study will identify how electrification, connectivity, and automation can significantly improve energy-efficient transportation of people and goods

GreenBlu Begins $1.6 Million U.S. Department of Energy Award to Commercialize Adsorption Desalination Technology

New technology to make zero-carbon, zero-discharge desalination and wastewater treatment affordable

Clean-Energy Water Desalination the Key to Disaster Preparedness

Projects currently exist that combine solar photovoltaic technology with reverse osmosis. As battery technologies for solar systems become more prominent, the practicality of these setups will increase.
