our goals & objectives

  • 01

    Build an innovative carbon-free ecosystem with the help of a residential energy grid

    NEOM will build a self-contained, low-cost grid of renewable energy, integrated seamlessly into the architecture of the community. With the help of AI, residents will be able to return excess generation back to the grid, ensuring a sustainable cycle for all.

  • 02

    Create an optimized energy mix at costs well below global averages

    Powered by solar energy and thermal winds, NEOM will supply industries, businesses and residents alike with clean, cheap energy that boasts minimal emissions and optimal reliability.

  • 03

    Shape the next frontier of clean energy by investing in green hydrogen

    Solar and wind energy will not only provide sustainable energy on their own, but they’ll also offer a singular set of conditions for developing new clean technologies such as green hydrogen — perhaps the biggest driver for the future of global decarbonization.

  • 04

    Drive leading R&D and innovation in renewable energy

    By establishing an environment for innovation to thrive in, NEOM will become a world leader in clean energy-intensive industries, setting an example for how to treat and commercialize energy.
