On the Fully Charged channel, Robert takes us for a tour of Dubai's Sustainable City, a development designed to have a net zero energy development.

We spent an amazing day at the Sustainable City, a housing development in Dubai with 3,500 people already living there and it's still not quite finished. This truly is a remarkable achievement, a stark lesson to building contractors the world over. It's not more expensive to build and it's hugely cheaper and more efficient to live in. Spread the word if you know any builders!
