Inspiration can come from small, even odd, observations. Noticing how much water an air conditioner collected, Eole Water founder Marc Parent went on a quest to develop a system that could extract the water contained in air. Looking to make use of renewable energy source, Parent turned to wind energy.

Ten years on, a prototype wind power-driven Eole Water system for the past six months has been consistently producing as much as 800 liters-a-day of clean water in Abu Dhabi, according to a Geek.com report. The company’s now negotiating with manufacturers to manufacture the system at commercial scale.
