SunPower Technology Powers World-Class Research And Education Center In Masdar City

With its reputation for reliable, high quality technology, SunPower’s high-efficiency solar panels were selected to maximise the solar power generated by the system and achieve our renewable energy goals.”

– Alan Frost, Director of Masdar City

SunPower™ solar panels have been chosen to power one of the most ambitious and futuristic projects in the world: Masdar City, an emerging global clean technology cluster located in what aims to be one of the world’s most sustainable urban developments powered by renewable energy.

This groundbreaking City, located on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, will eventually be home to companies, researchers, and academics from across the globe, creating an international hub for organisations focused on renewable energy and clean technologies.
