Future of Health- A Portable, Self-Powered Clean Water And Energy System

The organization Essential Element has developed a mobile water purification plant called HYDRA. The self-powered system has been designed to operate in disaster relief areas and areas with remote access to clean water, providing purified water through solar-powered electrolysis. The HYDRA additionally stores excess energy to power electrical devices directly through the unit.

Cofounder Peter Wernsdorfer, former Director of Public Works for the City of Allentown, comments below:

As someone who was responsible for providing clean water to communities during emergencies, I consistently faced the logistical challenge of fueling remote equipment. The fact that The HYDRA is a self-contained power and water purification plant changes the game. It will probably save lives the first day it is put into service.

Over the next few weeks, PSFK is running a trends research and innovation project in association with UNICEF. We will be researching (with your help) the development of key trends that impact health and wellbeing and then using our findings to develop with partners concepts that UNICEF and likeminded organizations could consider deploying across the world.
