Research Institution
SOURCE is a Hydropanel, a solar-powered technology needing only sunlight and air to make drinking water. Installed on a rooftop or on the ground, SOURCE extracts water vapor from the air to make, mineralize, and deliver drinking water to a tap. Uniquely independent of infrastructure, SOURCE is the only technology capable of making high-quality drinking water without plugging into an additional electric or water supply. While SOURCE looks similar to a solar panel, its purpose is to make water from the air. SOURCE Hydropanels leverage thermodynamics, materials science, and controls technology to create high-quality drinking water. SOURCE is powered by an integral combination of solar photovoltaics and high-efficiency solar thermal. The electrical and thermal power is used to efficiently produce high-purity water in a modified psychrometric cycle even in some of the driest deserts in the world.
