The experiment introduces a design and sizing platform for RE-powered desalination systems, addressing the need for simultaneous optimization of both desalination and renewable energy systems, leading to lower water costs and improved efficiency.

Start date: 01/11/2015

Duration in months: 18

Problem Description

The design process for RE-powered desalination systems involves two steps: designing the reverse osmosis desalination system and designing the renewables system based on the desalination unit. This approach, which involves two distinct steps, can result in non-optimized systems.


New services


Implement a simultaneous optimization of both steps.

Innovation results

The experiment introduced a major innovation by optimizing both desalination and renewable energy systems simultaneously, resulting in improved efficiency and lower water costs.

Business impact

DESAL, a solution for desalination, is set to gain significant market share through cost-effective turn-key solutions, collaborations with third-party SMEs, and increased water production by over 40% without compromising system properties.
