Power generation capacity is set to double in the next 25 years, no matter what the fuel source: nuclear, natural gas, coal, geothermal...

Global CO2 emissions need to be cut by a tremendous amount, and one of the most salient emitters currently are power plants. More than 85% of the world's power still comes from steam power plants, and these plants are more inefficient than they need to be. DropWise's mission is to use our unique coating materials and application process to make inroads on efficiency in power generation. Each plant that applies a DropWise coating will be offsetting, on average, an amount of carbon equal to taking several thousand cars off the road. 

Globally, the CO2 impact of DropWise coatings has the potential to offset more carbon than the entire global solar installations from 2013. We believe strongly that this is a mission worth working towards. 

As the second largest consumer of water on the planet, thermal power plants will play a significant role in the availability or scarcity of this resource in the future. DropWise coatings enable a power plant to generate the same amount of electricity with less coolant water, by enhancing the thermal transport and extracting heat from condensing steam more efficiently. This is good news for power generators, who are faced with increasing restrictions from coolant effluent regulations.
