The UAE’s Masdar City is planning to build the region’s first net-zero energy mosque in Abu Dhabi.
The mosque, located in the sustainability and innovation hub, will accommodate 1,300 worshippers and operate on 100% solar energy.
The main structure of the mosque will be made primarily of rammed earth, with tiered windows on the roof allowing natural light to illuminate the space.
The construction will prioritize sustainability, diverting at least 70% of waste from landfill, using local and recycled materials, and implementing water-saving measures.
The project aligns with the UAE’s goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
