With iconic skylines, artificial islands, historic mosques, gigantic shopping complexes and world famous beach resorts, Dubai offers plenty of things to do!
On the edges of Abu Dhabi, beside Abu Dhabi International Airport, there is a city designed to be a hub for cleantech companies. Masdar City relies on solar energy and other renewable energy sources. The original plan was to complete the world’s first planned sustainable city by 2016. But due to the global financial crisis of the late 2000s, it was never finished.
As of today, Masdar is like a ghost city - it is currently meeting less than 1% occupancy. Only 5% of the original project has been fully constructed. Current estimates have this futuristic city being completed by 2030. The planning directors decided to abandon the zero carbon idea, and are currently building the rest of Masdar City to be 50% carbon-neutral.
