Potable water scarcity can be considered as a challenge nowadays and at least in the nearest future. Many factors contribute to such situation. Common techniques for desalination purpose include multistage flash, multi-effect distillation and reverse osmosis dedicated essentially to large scales. Humidification Dehumidification Desalination systems appear as low scale installations mainly powered by renewable or geothermal energy. This paper focuses on the state of the art of such installations. It discusses their types, their composition and the available models treating them and their outputs, the plants optimization procedures as well as productivity and costs of these systems. The study aims also the futures of such installations.
