Breaking Energy had the honor of touring Masdar City in Abu Dhabi last year – a UAE government-supported initiative to build the world’s most sustainable city – which will house research centers and corporations doing cutting-edge sustainable energy work.

Masdar City reached a milestone with the opening of GE’s Ecomagination Clean Tech Hub. “The new 840 square meter hub located in Masdar City’s incubator building…is designed not only to showcase existing innovations that result in more efficient use of energy and water, but also to foster even further discussion and innovation,” as reported by Green Prophet.

“Masdar City is on a journey to build the world’s most sustainable city,” said HE Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, UAE minister of state and CEO of Masdar. “The addition of GE is an important milestone in our growth, as we expand and incorporate a diverse mix of tenants. Today, Masdar is a sustainable operation, combining multinational companies, organizations, startups and the amenities that make up a diverse urban community.” – Green Prophet
