Sharjah Sustainable City's prominent national projects are in the spotlight at this year’s WETEX show.
The $544million project is the outcome of a strategic partnership between the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Diamond Developers.
State-held news agency Wam reports that smart homes in the city are being built to offer up to 100% savings on electricity bills and a 50% reduction in water bills.
"Sharjah Sustainable City is a new concept of sustainability in Sharjah. It meets the highest social, environmental and economic standards of sustainability," said Fares Saeed, CEO of Diamond Developers.
"It will make a radical change in the concept of cities. Instead of being cities that harm the environment, they will be eco-friendly and adopt the highest environmental protection standards in every aspect.”
“The city is powered entirely by renewable energy produced by solar panels, and has recycling plants that will recycle water and waste one hundred percent. It will be an ideal model of a sustainable city."
