Masdar City, is a new development being built in Abu Dhabi. This city will be the first in the world which will be zero carbon and zero waste and powered totally by renewable sources. The city will also be car free and pedestrian friendly with only 200m to nearest access to public transport networks. These public network transport networks shall consist of light rail transport LRT and Personal rapid transport PRT systems which will ensure both speed and privacy. Photovoltaic, Geothermal and reverse osmosis are some of the technologies that are under consideration to build the new city.
This city will definitely be a pioneering effort, leading the way to a cleaner greener world. The costs of building a city of this scale is definitely huge, but the benefits cannot be measured on any scale.
