The alternative energy sources, privileges and even minuses of a utopian clean city, which, perhaps, will remain only a green project of the future. Why is this possible? You will find it out now. Masdar City is the world's first zero-carbon green metropolis plan being developed in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The metropolis, which will work almost entirely on solar energy and other repeatable energy sources, will be the very first case of an eco-city in the world. All other projects will be completed by the 2025 year.
With the growing demand for innovative technologies, convenience and wealth, ecosystem pollution has become an inappropriate guest in the world to come, along with technological progress that is growing in nothing.
In the modern world, it is impossible to imagine a space free of pollution. The megalopolis Masdar has the determination and courage to suspend this unwanted guest.
Masdar City is an Abu Dhabi zero-carbon plan. It is founded by Masdar, which is considered a subordinate of the Mubadala Development Company. The metropolis is conceived by the English construction company Foster and Partners. The plan started in 2006, intending to end the first period by 2009, but was canceled until 2015 because of massive financial decline. At this point, the process of perfect construction has been going on for more than 12 years. The budget which was allocated for the construction of the world's first eco-friendly metropolis draws $20 million. It is designed to accommodate 50,000 people and 1,500 business centers in 6 square kilometers of land, which is located near the Moscow region of Abu Dhabi. Architects designed the metropolis, not forgetting the comfort and ease for pedestrians and cyclists. The navigation system of a metropolis, in non-professional circles, can be understood as the flow of passengers that progresses in a metropolis and develops according to End Point and City ID.
The creators of Masdar followed an unusual and amazing engineering method, preserving long-term freshness for the metropolis, not paying attention to placing the plan in a deserted hot territory. They built the highest 46-meter wind tower, which draws in fresh air from above and releases it into the streets of the metropolis. Thus, maintaining the temperature within 15-20 C, including in the hot weather conditions of the Abu Dhabi deserts. The metropolis was designed and built to rise somewhat above the territory, to keep the temperature lower than it is outside. Besides this, the dwellings are built quite close to each other, which can help to reduce the amount of sunlight coming from the street.
However, twelve years later, only the first phase was built, and this is less than 5% of the initial 6 square km of a greenish oasis in the desert. The construction completion date was again rescheduled to 2030. The core of the metropolis Masdar is located in space, in the center of a large square structure, which is considered the headquarters of Siemens in the Middle East. A 46-meter Teflon-coated wind tower can help refresh cold breezes along a shady street, equipped with a grocery store, a bank, a post office, a dining room, and several coffee shops.
The innovative independent transport system, which at first had to stretch to 100 stations, was liquidated subsequently by the first 2 stops. The main communication link in the city will be the public transport system (PRT), as there was no place for private cars for residents in the initial project. However, due to the high costs of deploying underground routes, in a revised plan, there is still a need for personal vehicles.
Masdar city is completely dependent on solar and other renewable energy sources for its energy needs. For this purpose, he has a 21-hectare field, which has 87,777 solar panels installed in addition to the solar panels on the roofs that are installed throughout the city. Another incredible thing in the city is the lack of electric switches and water taps. For this, motion sensors will be present to perform these functions instead of city residents and, thus, saving about 50% of energy and resources, as planned by urban planners.
Despite the fact that now Masdar has slightly lost his initial thirst for the creation of something completely new, pure and beautiful, this is still a great step of mankind in order to help cleanse the planet from pollution and other harmful chemicals that we created to satisfy our an endless thirst for luxury and comfort. The eco-city entered the second phase of construction last year and does not plan to retreat from the target.
