“Malmo, Sweden, for example, used to be a polluted industrial center that was home to nuclear power plants. Since 2000, however, city officials have closed both plants and pledged to make Malmo both carbons neutral by 2020 and able to run on entirely renewable energy by 2030. By the end of this year, they also expect Malmo’s fleet of municipal vehicles to run on hydrogen, electricity or biogas, the latter of which is created from mandatorily collected food waste.”
“Strategically located for Abu Dhabi’s principal transport infrastructure, Masdar will be linked to surrounding communities as well as the centre of Abu Dhabi and the
international airport by a network of existing road and new rail and public transport routes. Rooted in a zero carbon ambition, the city itself is car free. With a
maximum distance of 200m to the nearest transport link and amenities, the compact network of streets encourages walking and is complemented by a personalised
rapid transport system. The shaded walkways and narrow streets will create a pedestrian friendly environment in the context of Abu Dhabi’s extreme climate. It
also articulates the tightly planned, compact nature of traditional walled cities. With expansion carefully planned, the surrounding land will contain wind, photovoltaic
farms, research fields and plantations, so that the city will be entirely self-sustaining.”
