By 2030, global demand for freshwater will exceed supply by 40%. But right now, in any 24-hour period, 844,000 people are without water and as a result, 21,000 children die every day. Solar Water Plc is the provider of a breakthrough, innovative technology that generates freshwater from seawater, supplying all manner of global societal benefits: municipalities, agriculture, industry, tourism, saving lives and many more. The solution is 100% carbon neutral and completely sustainable, utilizing the concentrated power of the sun. Supported by Cranfield University it is set to help reverse climate change by replacing traditional fossil fuel water treatment plants and also develop more carbon sinks. As a world-first in carbon-neutral hydro infrastructure, it won the prestigious Rushlight Water Treatment Award at the Royal Geographical Society, London in January 2018.
