Masdar City

Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, is a planned city that hopes to be a model sustainable city relying entirely on renewable energy sources. Functioning like an alive laboratory, Masdar will be a place where current and future renewable energy technologies will be researched, tested, developed and showcased. The City will house 40,000 residents and hundreds of businesses upon completion.

The urban core of Masdar will be pedestrian only, while personal rapid transit  (PRT) pod cars will be operated underground together with a light rail system.

First phase of the City is currently under construction.
