The Beacon of Innovation

Beacon ACUAE-based Beacon Energy Solutions and Technology participated at Middle East Electricity to raise awareness for its star product – Solar Hybrid Air Conditioner: Atlantis Solar – and launch an Air to Water generator: Atlantis H2O

Improvised for the Middle East region, the Solar Hybrid Air Conditioners are already operational at a staff accommodation in Jebel Ali Industrial site in Dubai. This is the largest installation of Atlantis Solar Hybrid AC in the world. In effect for a year, the initiative has helped save around US$65,340 in electricity bills for the user.

For Sandhya Prakash, a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Beacon Energy – the official distributor of Atlantis Solar in the Middle East – this invention is nothing short of a revolution. She explains why. 

“The Solar Hybrid AC uses the sun’s heat or thermal energy to generate pressure via thermal tubes that reduce load on the compressors. The AC has a smaller sized compressor for a higher efficiency cooling as a result. This process consumes 40-60 per cent lesser energy than a normal air conditioner. Therefore, it is a significant step to curb global warming.”

Citing the Jebel Ali Industrial project, Sandhya adds that the success has propelled Beacon Energy and we will push for more projects in the region. 

The newly launched Air to Water Generator is a unique concept promoted by the company. Atlantis H2O captures atmospheric humidity and converts the air into potable water. This means two things – no desalination required and no plastic packaging of clean water. 

But the inherent question remains. The Middle East is a water-scarce region so how do we ensure a regular supply of water for this system to run?

Sandhya clarifies: “The generator doesn’t need water from the ground. What it requires is water vapour in the air or humidity. And there is enough humidity in a coastal area like Dubai to generate water in the system. We have had running water inside Dubai World Trade Centre with a humidity of 40 per cent. The water has been tested and approved by Dubai labs as safe for drinking.”

She further stresses that Atlantis H2O not only gives fulfils the water demand but also produces alkaline water for better health.

Now viable for commercial use, Atlantis H2O it is available for small establishments in 20, 70 and 120 litres a day for internal use and for bigger ones in 1,000 to 5,000 litres a day for external use. It can be ordered via Beacon’s website

Beacon is not just about innovating and practical solutions but also about educating. Sandhya explains that as an energy management and solar solutions firm, Beacon’s energy monitoring, audit, retrofit and solar (MARS) process works across the board from reducing power demand to producing power with its customised cost-saving approach with tried and tested solutions across 60+ clients in UAE.
