Abu Dhabi – Regional Infrastructure for Al Gharbia (2008)


The infrastructure plan for Al Gharbia 2030 is to provide adequate needs for the Region’s communities and the increased demand that they produce through new infrastructure systems that run in parallel with the existing infrastructure.

The overarching principle is for the new infrastructure to be located locally to the Region’s communities and with capacity to meet all the needs of the increased population Al Gharbia to 300,000 residents.

The new infrastructure will be zero-carbon, providing leading edge technology and building on the lessons learned from Masdar and other global exemplary developments.

The region of Al Gharbia is unique, in that it has the potential for abundant infrastructure needs to be delivered to all inhabitants and industry that are zero-Carbon with strong and robust resilience to the networks.

The plan shall ensure that the increased demand of the region will be met by zero-Carbon technology with localized production, supply and treatment systems.
