United Arab Emirates

Yearbook 2008

United Arab Emirates. According to Countryaah reports, the environmentally friendly city of Masdar City in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi began to be built in February. The city, which is scheduled to open for some companies in 2009 and be fully completed in 2016, was planned to become the world's first city completely free of carbon dioxide emissions, waste and cars. According to the prospectus, the energy would come from solar and wind power.

At the same time, the United Arab Emirates accelerated its focus on nuclear energy. During the year, agreements were first signed with France and then with the United Kingdom on cooperation on nuclear energy development. The United Arab Emirates and France also agreed on enhanced military cooperation and a French military base in Abu Dhabi.
