Masdar has more than a decade of experience as a renewable energy developer and investor, working in partnership with business and government.
Active in more than 30 countries, Masdar is one of the largest developers of renewable energy projects in the Middle East. It is a leading developer and operator of utility-scale as well as off-grid renewable energy projects, which are helping to expand energy access in emerging markets and reduce reliance on fossil fuels for electricity generation.
Since 2006, Masdar has invested in mainly solar and wind power projects with a combined value of US$19.9 billion. Masdar’s share of this investment is in excess of US$7 billion.
The electricity generating capacity of our projects, which are either fully operational or under development, is over 10GW gross. Altogether, they displace over 16 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
Masdar is advancing clean-tech innovation by deploying the latest technologies at scale, enhancing their commercial viability. Incubating technologies in the field and acquiring operational data helps to attract investment and promotes the wider deployment of advanced technologies at scale.
We are contributing to the growth of the clean energy sector in the Middle East through capacity building and the deployment of innovative technologies that are relevant to the region, such as solar power plants that generate electricity for air-conditioning at the hottest times of the day, waste-to-energy technology that is helping to divert waste from landfill sites, and energy-efficient reverse osmosis seawater desalination as an alternative to thermal desalination technologies.
