Atmospheric Water Generation Technologies

Atmospheric Water Generation: A Horizon Scan of Innovation and Technologies

Isle Utilities helps TAQA establish whether atmospheric water generation technologies can provide a viable, sustainable alternative water source for the UAE.

Our client, TAQA, wanted to explore the market of atmospheric water generation. By doing so, they aimed to help Abu Dhabi explore new alternative water solutions.

Our mission was to identify effective atmospheric water generation technologies that could help fulfill Abu Dhabi’s needs. Next, we were tasked with evaluating the investment potential of each of the technologies.

We developed a comprehensive portfolio of atmospheric water generation technologies for TAQA. These detail the technologies’ various stages of commercialisation and potential market readiness. We delivered a workshop that ranked atmospheric water generation technologies
based on benefits and TAQA’s strategic priorities. Finally, we conducted due diligence on viable partners and experts most able to bring the concept to life.
