Abstract: In India as well as around the world there is abundance of water but scarcity of potable or usable water. The basic idea of the project is convert unusable sea water into desalinated water using renewable energy. To get the desired results we have used a Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) which focuses the solar energy. A heat pipe is combined with the CPC to maximise the efficiency.

Keywords: Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC), Heat Pipes, Desalination, Solar Energy.
