    Water Abundance XPRIZE


    XPRIZE is an innovation engine. A facilitator of exponential change. A catalyst for the benefit of humanity.

    We believe in the power of competition. That it’s part of our DNA. Of humanity itself. That tapping into that indomitable spirit of competition brings about breakthroughs and solutions that once seemed unimaginable. Impossible.

    We believe that you get what you incentivize. And that without a target, you will miss it every time. Rather than throw money at a problem, we incentivize the solution and challenge the world to solve it.

    We believe that challenges must be audacious, but achievable, tied to objective, measurable goals. And understandable by all.

    We believe that solutions can come from anyone, anywhere and that some of the greatest minds of our time remain untapped, ready to be engaged by a world that is in desperate need of help. Solutions. Change. And radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.


    An XPRIZE is a highly leveraged, incentivized prize competition that pushes the limits of what’s possible to change the world for the better.

    It captures the world’s imagination and inspires others to reach for similar goals, spurring innovation and accelerating the rate of positive change.



    HALF OF THE GLOBAL POPULATION LIVES IN AREAS WHERE WATER TABLES ARE RAPIDLY FALLING.

    THERE ARE OVER 3 QUADRILLION GALLONS OF UNTAPPED WATER IN THE ATMOSPHERE, OR ENOUGH TO MEET THE NEEDS OF EVERY PERSON ON THE PLANET FOR A YEAR.

    BY 2025, AN ESTIMATED 1.8 BILLION PEOPLE WILL LIVE IN AREAS PLAGUED BY WATER SCARCITY.



    2. CHALLENGE GOALS

    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.


    4. WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? 

    XPRIZE believes that solutions can come from anyone, anywhere. Scientists, engineers, academics, entrepreneurs and innovators with new ideas from all over the world are invited to form a team and register to compete. To participate, a team may need to recruit additional experts and can add new members at any time throughout the competition. Competing teams will own the Intellectual Property of their submissions.
