Masdar City Promotes Its Green Cred to Businesses

At the European Future Energy Forum (EFEF) 2011, Masdar City displayed business opportunities to companies in renewable energy and clean technology as well as service providers in that industry.

In a convention in Geneva, Ahmed Baghoum, Director of City Zone, discussed vital reasons for locating in Masdar City. During the event, key officials for the project, along with Baghoum, meet various businesses and organizations in the field of sustainable and renewable energy industry.

There has been great interest in this new city, he says, because Abu Dhabi serves as a gateway to the economies of the world including the middle East, North Africa, and much of Asia.

Baghoum strongly believes that companies based in Masdar City:

"...can benefit from the unique value propositions of a special economic zone. These include the chance to collaborate with prominent like-minded experts and keep abreast of the latest research and development being carried out at Masdar Institute. Registered companies also have the opportunity to participate in pilot projects being carried out in Masdar City and to work in close proximity with leading international cleantech companies such as Siemens and Schneider Electric among others."
