SUSTAINABILITY

Msheireb Downtown Doha redefines urban living by harmonizing contemporary design, environmental reverence, and inclusivity to create a vibrant and sustainable atmosphere for all.

Designed with utmost consideration, streets capture breezes and offer shade, while buildings feature eco-materials like heat-isolating glass for reduced cooling needs. Through advanced technologies and intelligent strategies, our energy consumption is remarkably lowered by 30%. Solar energy is harnessed through 6,400 rooftop panels and 1,400 solar panels, generating 1400MW annually. Smart lighting, water-saving solutions, green mobility, and waste management further reinforce our eco-commitment.

  • Sustainability Facts Buildings are massed to shade one another, and light coloured to reduce cooling requirements.
  • Sustainability Facts Eco-friendly building material, thicker walls, heat-isolating glass that prevent the heat loss and keeps the internal temperature, resulting in loess use of energy for cooling.
  • Sustainability Facts 30% energy reduction due to the improved building envelopes of walls and windows, recessed windows, energy recovery to the outside air entering the building, optimised and a high-efficiency district cooling plant.
  • Sustainability Facts Abundant solar energy captured through photovoltaic solar panels and solar hot water panels on rooftops is used to generate electricity. Over 6,400 rooftop solar panels to provide onsite energy generation and 1,400 solar panels to secure hot water.
  • Sustainability Facts Water-saving of non-potable water is 70% of the city's total consumption. The city relies on refined water from Ashgal.
  • Sustainability Facts Efficient irrigation systems and native green species adapted to survive in dry conditions reduce landscape irrigation requirements.
  • Sustainability Facts Planting many native species adapted to survive in dry conditions reduce landscape irrigation requirements.
  • Sustainability Facts Green transport within the city by a tram that uses clean energy, in addition to dedicated lanes for bicycles and walkers.
