A relatively new application in water technology is the drinking water generators. These are devices that produce drinking water from the humidity of the atmosphere. The water passes through a series of filtration and enrichment steps and is stored in the container that the generator has for consumption.
Drinking water generators deliver from 25 liters per day, up to several tonnes. Because they require a power consumption for their operation, in many cases they are combined with other RES as hybrid systems (eg 30 kw wind turbine generating 5 tonnes of potable water per day for use in settlements).
