SOURCE Project

SOURCE was one of eight startups that collaborated with KAUST on the project, and the university has integrated our Hydropanel technology into the home’s design. Using just sunlight and air, the system produces enough premium drinking water to support a household of 2-4 people every day for 15 years, and is playing a vital role in KAUST’s goal of created a net-zero home.
