Building a green city: The Masdar Initiative

My family lived in Dubai years ago, at the beginning of the massive economic and building boom, but even then it was clear that the United Arab Emirates was undergoing some dramatic changes.

The Masdar Initiative to build a ‘green city’ is one such monumental effort worth tracking. It provides a platform to find and build solutions including those involving sustainable energy and water conservation, and to drive the commercialization of these research technologies. It will also create new industries and new markets for the UAE, and provide an interesting model for the rest of the world.
