King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (KA-CARE) is a new city that exploits the attributes of the site while protecting the natural environment. The city presents a vision of the future desert city – one that is entirely driven by renewable energy. KA-CARE will strive to promote a new lifestyle that shows that sustainability is easy and beneficial. At the very heart of the masterplan of the city is the proposed King Abdullah Gardens – a desert oasis that will be a haven of calm.
KA-CARE will be a ‘Compact City’, approximately 7km long, to ensure that its carbon footprint is low, that communication distances are reduced and the city becomes in all respects more sustainable. The Master Plan will promote and encourage commercial projects. Floor space is provided for research institutes and a Nuclear Research Reactor as well as for small and medium size start up enterprises (SME’s) arising from the research.
