A development sponsored by Abu Dhabi’s Future Energy Company, the city will be a 6 square km walled plan – powered by a photovoltaic power plant, wind farms, and research fields & plantations [creating an entirely self sustaining city]. The city will also be car free – creating some kind of tram system for the residents.
â€œThe environmental ambitions of the Masdar Initiative â€“ zero carbon and waste free â€“ are a world first. They have provided us with a challenging design brief that promises to question conventional urban wisdom at a fundamental level. Masdar promises to set new benchmarks for the sustainable city of the future.â€ [Norman Foster]
