Masdar City, una ciudad centrada en las energías renovables en el paraíso del petróleo.

En mitad del desierto, en uno de los países que producen mayor cantidad de petróleo del mundo y con el 8% de los recursos petrolíferos conocidos, cerca del emirato de Abu Dhabi, existe una ciudad de nueva construcción llamada Masdar (en árabe Fuente) que se merece un artículo en worldWtrade ya que aspira a ser la primera ciudad libre de carbono del mundo.

La ciudad está siendo diseñada por el famoso arquitecto británico Norman Foster, las pretensiones son de conseguir alojar a 50.000 personas para la finalización del proyecto. Este proyecto es de iniciativa privada aunque esponsorizado por el gobierno del emirato. Gran parte de la financiación proviene de los fondos soberanos de Mubadala cuya intención es conseguir una diversificación efectiva de la economía de Abu Dhabi.

La importancia de este proyecto se justifica en la necesidad de diversificar las fuentes de energía con las que cuenta el emirato, ya que Abu Dhabi es totalmente consciente de que ha de diversificar las actividades en las que sustenta su crecimiento si quiere disponer de una viabilidad a largo plazo. Así por ejemplo podemos ver como Abu Dhabi o Dubai se han intentado especializar en atraer a parte del turismo mundial o como están apostando para convertir Emiratos Árabes en el Hub más importante de mercancías y pasajeros entre Europa y Asia.
Además Abu Dhabi, considera que es una buena manera de devolver al planeta parte del daño que está generando con la expulsión de dióxido de carbono que genera su actividad principal, la explotación del petróleo. Por tanto consideran que es lo mínimo que deben hacer promocionar y desarrollar la energía limpia para tener la conciencia tranquila. El coste total del proyecto estimado, para cuando termine entre 2015 y 2020 será de 19.800 millones de dólares, lo que supone una grandísima apuesta para las empresas del sector de la energía limpia.

Como probablemente ya sabrán, si existe un sector en el que España se encuentra entre los más punteros del mundo es el de las energías renovables y como no podía ser de otra forma, las empresas españolas se han hecho cargo del desarrollo de Masdar.

Entre los movimientos españoles en este ámbito se encuentra la creación de la Joint Venture Torresol por parte de las empresas, Sener y Masdar. Esta joint-venture supone un compromiso de inversión de 2.000 millones de euros para este año. Así la base de producción instalada supera los 320 MW y en torno a ocho años se aproximará a los 1.000MW. Esta unión busca que la empresa española provea su experiencia en el desarrollo de la tecnología punta que le ha situado en los primeros puestos de la ingeniería mundial. Masdar consigue como ya hemos dicho, diversificar su economía y reforzar la imagen del país como agente activo en la lucha global por el desarrollo sostenible del planeta. (

También Abengoa ha generado una joint venture consiguiendo otro contrato, para la creación de un nuevo parque solar en Masdar, tras unirse a la francesa Total que operarán la planta shams-1 en conjunto con la empresa Masdar. Está última licitación supondrá la planta solar más grande dentro de Emiratos Árabes. Serán Abener y Teyma, dos compañías subsidiarias de Abengoa las que se encargarán de la creación de la planta. Tras el comienzo de la explotación serán Abengoa y Total las encargadas de las operaciones y el mantenimiento.
Como podemos observar, España goza en el sector de las energías renovables de buena salud, y de hecho podríamos decir que es la envidia de muchos países en este sector. Además el ejemplo de Masdar nos permite encontrar interesantes proyectos de diversificación de las fuentes de energía por parte de los países productores de petróleo debido a la toma de conciencia de que este es un recurso finito.


Masdar City, a city focused on renewable energies placed in the oil heaven

In the middle of the desert, in one of the most oil-producing countries in the world and owner of 8% of the known oil resources in the planet, nearby Abu Dhabi emirate, there is a new construction city called Masdar (Source in Arabic) that deserves an article in worldwtrade, as it aspires to be the first carbon free city in the World.

The city is being designed by the world famous architect Norman Foster. Its aim is to house 50,000 people by the end of the project, whose original idea comes from the private sector, but is being sponsored by the emirate government. Indeed, a big share of the financing comes from Mubadala’s sovereign funds, whose intention is to achieve a proper and effective diversification of Abu Dhabi’s economy.

The importance of this project relies on the need of diversify the energy sources that the emirate has. Abu Dhabi is entirely conscious that it has to diversify within the activities that sustain its growth to be able to have a long term economical sustainability. For instance, we can see how Abu Dhabi or Dubai have tried to specialize in attracting tourism or how they are doing efforts into becoming the most important transport hub between Europe and Asia, to both goods and people.

Moreover, Abu Dhabi considers that this is a good way to pay off a share of the harm it’s doing to the planet with the expulsion of carbon dioxide that provokes its core activity: the oil extraction. Hence, Abu Dhabi’s leaders conclude that it’s the least they can do: Promote and develop the clean energy. The estimated overall cost of the project once finished (among 2015-2020) is about $19,800 billion, which means a big deal for the clean energy companies and the whole sector.

As probably you know, if there is a sector where Spain is a leader country, it’s the renewable energy one, and naturally, Spanish companies are leading the development of Masdar.

Amid the Spanish businesses in the field, it stands out the creation of the Joint Venture Torresol, made up by Sener and Masdar. This JV involves an investment commitment of $2,600 billion for this year. The production base installed exceeds the 320MW and it’s expected to reach 1,000MW in 8 years time. This JV pursues the obtaining of the expertise and the know-how of the Spanish companies in the development of state-of-the-art technology that has placed it in the leading role of the worldwide engineering. On the other hand, Masdar achieves to diversify its economy and strengthen the image of an active country in the fight against global warming and advocate of sustainable growth. (

Abengoa has also generated a JV getting another deal for the creation of a new solar powerplant in Masdar, by joining the France-based firm Total. They will operate the plant shams-1 together with the firm Masdar. This project will mean the biggest solar powerplant inside the UAE. Abener and Teyma, two firms branches of Abengoa, will lead the plant build up. Once the powerplant begins to work, Abengoa and Total will lead the maintenance and operation.

To sum up, Spain is playing an important role in the field of renewable energies. In fact, it could be told that it impress some of the leaders in this field. Besides, the Masdar example allows to find interesting energy diversification projects, due to the awareness that oil is a limited source by the producing countries
