ABSTRACT
The article informs that the creation of Masdar City, the world's first zero-carbon, zero-waste city, by Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), is expected to make the emirate a centre for renewable-energy research. The UAE has the world's largest carbon footprint per capita and the Masdar city is the manifestation of an ambition to transform Abu Dhabi from being known as a large carbon dioxide producer into a global centre of excellence for renewable-energy research, development and innovation.
