Masdar City is the most ambitious sustainable development in the world today - it will be the world’s first zero carbon, zero waste city powered entirely by renewable energy sources.

As part of the Masdar Initiative, a long term strategic commitment by the government of Abu Dhabi to accelerate the development and deployment of future energy solutions, Masdar City will take sustainable development and living to a new level and will lead the world in understanding how all future cities should be built. The City is a cleantech cluster which is already attracting the world’s best in all areas of sustainability from renewable energy to biomass. All types of companies from innovators, incubators, research and development, pioneers and solution providers will be part of the journey to create, work and live in Masdar City.

Masdar City will be built over seven years at an investment in excess of US$20 Billion. Its masterplan design meshes the century-old learnings of traditional Arabic urban planning and architecture with leading-edge technologies to create a sustainable, high-quality living environment for all residents. The City will be built in seven carefully designed phases, incorporating the latest technological advances generated in its clean-tech cluster and globally. The first buildings under construction already demonstrate Masdar’s innovation appetite: Masdar headquarters building will receive its power required for construction from a vast PV array on its roof built ahead of the remaining structure – a world-first.

Strategically located at the heart of Abu Dhabi’s transport infrastructure, Masdar City will be linked to surrounding communities, as well as the centre of Abu Dhabi and the international airport, by a network of existing road, and new rail and public transport routes. The City will be car free and pedestrian friendly. With a maximum distance of 200 meters to public transport and amenities, and complemented by an innovative personal rapid transport system, the compact network of streets will encourage pedestrians and community social life.

Utility services at the City will include energy, district cooling, wet utilities (water, wastewater, re-use water, and storm water), telecommunications and waste management.

Infrastructure support projects at the City will include landscaping, common areas, leisure areas, access roads, bridges, tunnels and Information & Communication Technology (ICT) services as well as development management. To accomplish its ambitious endeavour, Masdar requires access to leading edge thinkers and companies through mutually beneficial partnerships. Masdar is currently embarking on a global drive to attract industry partners to participate in this historic endeavour. Partners should be innovators and thought leaders in the fields of:
