If it turns out as good as that, it will be a new wonder of the world

Amazing concept, but is it really that viable as a real city, considering all the equipment , construction and associated usages of the site.

Will be interesting to see.

This is nothing but extraordinarily fantastic. Masdar City is one of the first UAE projects I encounter that actually deserves standing ovations. For having an urban grid that really supports life on streets, for being sustainable and innovative. My to you Abu Dhabi!


Any update shots of the construction site? Those would be really appreciated.

Masdar hopes the solar panels installed can provde 30% higher energy output (************)

by CW Staff on Jan 17, 2012

Masdar City and TVP Solar have completed the installation of a field of high vacuum flat solar thermal panels for the solar cooling plant at the carbon neutral city.

Speaking on the sidelines of the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, Alan Frost, director of Masdar City, said that the TVP Solar MT-Power panels were expected to provide over 70% solar-to-cooling conversion efficiency, operating at 180˚C to drive a double-effect absorption chiller.

They don't have to worry about enough hours of sunshine. That's for sure.
