New wind turbines produce water as well as energy

This is an interesting new addition that could solve a lot of problems in many parts of the world. It may not generate substantial water everywhere, but even if it’s only for some regions this could make a big difference. Single purpose products seem so outdated. CNN:

“This technology could enable rural areas to become self-sufficient in terms of water supply,” says Thibault Janin, director of marketing at Eole Water. “As the design and capabilities develop, the next step will be to create turbines that can provide water for small cities or areas with denser populations,” he adds. Eole Water is currently displaying a working prototype of the 24 meter tall WMS1000 in the desert near Abu Dhabi that has been able to produce 62 liters of water an hour, says Janin.
