Abstract

Worldwide poor management of the available water sources in urban cities has been affecting the water quantity and quality for decades. In the future, water scarcity will result in a hike in the price of drinking water. Consequently, we might have limited access to it. There has been an extensive research in the production of water, which predominantly requires an external power, additional maintenance cost, and complex operations. This research provides an experimental approach for a sustainable and economical production of water from condensation of atmospheric moisture based on the principle of heat flow and Peltier effect and secondarily generating electricity. Research suggests that voltage thus developed isn’t substantial enough which can be amplified further. The results show that an ample amount of water has been produced, which can be increased by installing multiple units that can lead to mitigating water scarcity in future cities.
