Water Abundance XPRIZE

Water Abundance XPRIZE


The Water Abundance XPRIZE is a $1.75 million competition, challenging teams to alleviate the global water crisis with energy-efficient technologies that harvest fresh water from thin air. Teams will revolutionize access to fresh water by creating a device that extracts a minimum of 2,000 liters of water per day from the atmosphere using 100% renewable energy, at a cost of no more than 2 cents per liter.

CLOSED


DEADLINE

PRIZES

A $1.5 million Grand Prize will be awarded to the winning team and a Milestone Prize will be awarded to five the teams announced after the first round of testing.


OTHER KEY DATES

Team registration for the Water Abundance XPRIZE starts from October 24, 2016.

One Grand Prize Winner will be announced in August 2018.




Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
