The Winners - Water+
The first ever winners of The Green Idea were Andres Suarez, Jairo Mosquera and Balasubramanian Viswanathan with their clean water solutions for microgrids, Water+. By utilising excess electricity generation Water+ can reduce the demand for other storage solutions and at the same time offering invaluable clean drinking water.
Water+ came up with the idea at the event, which was not the case for all teams, and are now working on realising it. We are meeting them on a monthly basis for the coming six months.
