A city is currently being built in Dubai that will rely entirely on solar energy and other renewable energy sources.
It’s called Masdar City, and is currently a project in Abu Dhabi. It’s a planned city currently being built by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, with governmental aid. The city, which is designed by Foster and Partners, is going to rely completely on solar energy and other renewable energy sources AND have a sustainable, zero-carbon, zero-waste ecology. Sounds pretty ambitious, don’t you think?
Masdar City will also be the headquarters of the International Renewable Energy Agency, an organization whose name is pretty self explanatory. The first tenant of the city moved in back in 2010, which is the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology. Though the city was to be completed by 2016, it was pushed back to 2025. Still, that’s not TOO far off for something so ambitious.
