Wind turbines generate both electricity and water.

A company called “Eole water” has created a new kind of wind turbine that generates both electricity from the wind and clean water from the air. This amazing new turbine creates water from wind power even in the most dried out places. Eole water claims that each wind turbine can produce around 1000 Litres a day depending on the wind and the humidity in the air. The turbine works like any other wind turbine with 3 spinning blades to create electricity. This new turbine however can do all the things a normal one can but it will also suck humid air in through the nose then send it to a cooling compressor, which will then extract moisture from the air. Droplets of water will then drip down steel pipes into the base of the machine which holds a filtration and purification system that will make the water drinkable. The system is powered by the electricity generated by the turbine. windturbine A prototype of the turbine in Abu Dhabi has been able to produce around 500-800 Litres of clean water a day from the dry desert air. The turbine requires wind speeds of 15 miles per hour or more to be able to produce any water.

  1. This is the kind of invention that could make agriculture, powered by solar panels, really possible. The wind turbines produce energy but most of all water for the land, and the solar panels provide some of its energy to the agriculture but most of it goes to our houses. But ofcourse the oilcompanies will not let this happen as they only care about money and power. Sometimes I wish I could just blow up all the oil rigs in the world, force the world to make that step to clean solar and wind energy. <>

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
