net-zero mosque

Abu Dhabi plans to build the region’s first net-zero mosque at Masdar City. Masdar City was established in 2006 as a business hub and destination for clean technology companies, with a projected completion date of 2030.

The mosque construction will start next year and all details will be announced in the upcoming months, as reported by Construction Week.

The net-zero mosque project will span over 2300 sqm and accommodate 1300 worshippers. It will contain around 1500 sqm of PV panels. The construction material will be rammed earth, and strategically placed tiered windows on the roof will introduce natural light patterns.

“We have designed and created several net-zero energy projects, but this one has particular significance for us and for me personally, particularly given we’re announcing it during COP28,” said Mohamed Al Breiki, Executive Director of Sustainable Development, Masdar City.

“It will be more than a gathering place, a community hub, or a place of worship. It will take people on a cultural, spiritual, and environmental journey, serving as a powerful symbol of our commitment as responsible stewards of the earth. This mosque is our gift to the community,” stated Al Breiki.

Construction of the world’s first fully functional 3D-printed mosque in Bur Dubai will begin in October. The mosque will cover 2,000 sqm and accommodate 600 worshippers by early 2025.
