Photo @lucalocatelliphoto for @natgeo , the “low carbon” Masdar City, pictured here is one of the United Arab Emirates government’s most ambitious sustainable projects. Masdar is powered by a 22-hectare (54-acre) field of 87,777 solar panels with additional panels on roofs. Masdar City has terracotta walls decorated with arabesque patterns. Thanks to its design the temperature in the streets is generally 15 to 20 °C ( 59 to 68 °F) which is much cooler than the surrounding desert. Masdar was launched in Abu Dhabi in 2006 and is home to many tech companies, including the International Renewable Energy please follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to see more about this project and others #greencity #renewableenergy #sustainablecity #masdar #renewableenergy #transition #climatechange #globalwarming #dubai #abudhabi #uae #architecture #sustainableliving
