Masdar City, UAE
The world’s first zero-carbon renewable energy city being built in Abu- Dhabi envisions functioning on its own grid with full carbon neutrality. There are no light switches or water taps in the city; movement sensors control lighting and water to cut electricity and water consumption by 51 and 55 percent respectively.
In response to the project’s commitment to zero carbon, zero waste, and other environmentally friendly goals, WWF and BioRegional have endorsed Masdar City as an official One Planet Living Community.
Owing to its zero-carbon promise, Masdar City must balance economic and technological development with the preservation of its energy and sustainability.
