Vikram Solar Pvt. Ltd., the country’s leading Solar EPC player and module manufacturer, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Israel’s Water-Gen, a pioneer in air-to-water technology, to develop and introduce their path-breaking clean, hygienic drinking water solutions in the country. The technology developed by Water-Gen to create and store drinking water by harvesting condensation from the air, provides a potential solution to the clean and safe drinkable water crisis faced by India. The larger objective of this collaboration is to make available drinking water to the remote locations of the country using its rich natural resources – air and humidity. The cost-effectiveness of the technology is an added bonus that will help make the solution available to the masses.
Combined with Vikram Solar’s technological prowess and expertise in the solar power domain, the attempt is to conceptualize a product most suitable for the Indian market requirements. Incorporating use of solar power into the Water-Gen technology is expected to further enhance the energy efficiency and availability of power for the technology in remote locations, through use of solar panels.
