Today, billions of people live without access to freshwater and sanity and with an unreliable electric grid. Our research aims to produce freshwater with the use of desalination. Desalination is a process where salt is removed from seawater or brackish water, but this process is energy demanding. Our research project includes investigation of the possibility to power desalination plants using renewable energy sources, such as wave power, to produce freshwater on places worldwide where it is the most needed.
