Default Prototype wind turbine condenses 1,000 liters of water a day from desert air



Here is a different type of wind power (or really wind power being put to a different use). They're using it to condense water in arid climates. Its not even just a theoretical turbine, they have one operating already.

The Eole Water wind turbine isnít just an idea. A prototype unit was constructed and erected in Abu Dhabi 6 months ago and has consistently produced up to 800 liters of water a day. With that test proving the system works, Eole is now working with a number of manufacturers to produce the turbines.
