The Zero emissions city

Right now a zero emissions city is being built in Abu Dhabi that will server as a large scale test for renewable energy. The city will run mostly on solar energy, along with some wind and power from technology that converts garbage into fuel.

A lot of the money used to fund the city is coming from oil profits and the other large portion coming from the Masdar Initiative, a $15 billion government-funded investment program designed in part to ensure that the UAE’s prosperity won’t be linked exclusively to its oil.
