"Masdar is a place where the private sector and the scientific community can come together to make meaningful advancements in the areas our planet needs most".

Masdar is Abu Dhabi's multi-faceted initiative advancing the development, commercialisation and deployment of renewable and alternative energy technologies and solutions.
