Photovoltaic modules will be placed on rooftops to provide solar energy -130 megawatts Wind farms will be established outside the city's perimeter capable of producing up to 20 megawatts The city also intends to utilise geothermal power, in addition, there are plans to host the world's largest hydrogen power plant. Water management - a solar-powered desalination plant will be used to provide the city's water needs, with approximately 80% of the water used being recycled. Waste water will be reused "as many times as possible," with this greywater being used for crop irrigation and other purposes. Biological waste will be used to create nutrient-rich soil and fertiliser, and some may also be utilised through waste incineration as an additional power source. Industrial waste, such as plastics and metals, will be recycled or re-purposed for other uses.
