Masdar City First Global Cleantech Cluster

June 28, 2017 / 532 / Category : Freezones

Masdar City is the first global cleantech cluster to be located in one of the most sustainable cities in the world. It is home to the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

The 6-sq-km city, located near Abu Dhabi International Airport and 17km from downtown Abu Dhabi, is emerging as a global centre for the sale, marketing, servicing and demonstration of renewable energy and sustainability technologies, as well as research and development, and investment in these fields.

A one-stop shop for companies in the sector, Masdar City provides quick and easy set up, without the need for a local sponsor.
