The World´s Water Crises Explained

From Not Enough to Too Much, the World’s Water Crisis Explained

Many more cities than Cape Town face an uncertain future over water. But there are emerging solutions.

“Day Zero,” when at least a million homes in the city of Cape Town, South Africa, will no longer have any running water,

Global water crisis: Facts, FAQs, and how to help

Every child deserves clean water.

There’s nothing more essential to life on Earth than water. Yet, from Cape Town to Flint, Michigan, and from rural, sub-Saharan Africa to Asia’s teeming megacities, there’s a global water crisis.

Cities in the face of drought
More than five billion people could suffer water shortages by 2050, as a vicious combination of climate change, increased demand and wasteful inefficiencies plunge the world’s water supply under threat. The Telegraph investigates what can be done to prevent future crises.
Water becoming more valuable than gold

Over the past 10 years the S&P 500 Global Water index has outperformed the bellwether gold and energy indices. Water becoming more valuable than gold


Windgiant - Wind Turbine Tower 1.6 MW

Clean energy from wind power and fresh water from the wind flow & its entrained humidity components from 1 m/sec to 15 m/sec continuous operation.


Double safety control system in parallel with classical wind power operation:

Wind Turbine Towers of 1.6 MW have an additional safety control system.

With 8 twin turbines, the wind flow supply is controlled via 8 hydraulically controlled lifting cylinder wind lock gates by "opening and closing" in the wind tower at the tower bottom to each of the 8 twin turbines.

Via the PLC control system, the wind flow supply to the individual 8 twin turbines is switched on or off in series depending on the wind speed.

  1. From startup at 1 m/sec, the individual 8 twin turbines are switched on in series depending on the wind speed up to 12 m/sec.
    2. From 12 m/sec to 15 m/sec strong wind the 8 wind gates close between 25% to 50% for further controlled and safe wind power operation in strong wind.
    3. From 15 m/sec to 16 m/sec high wind, all 8 wind lock gates close.
    4. From 11-12 m/sec wind speed all 8 double turbines are switched on again in series.

This double safety control concept is based on the combination of wind power and hydropower control technology that has been successfully used for decades.
