Khalifa International Stadium, also known as National Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium in Doha, Qatar as part of the Doha Sports City complex, which also includes Aspire Academy, Hamad Aquatic Centre, and the Aspire Tower. It is named after Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani, Qatar's former Emir. The final of 2011 AFC Asian Cup was held at this stadium. The stadium is also the first completed venue that will host a part of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. In 2017, it received a four star rating from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS), the first in the world to be awarded this rating.
The energy center is set to centralize the cooling infrastructure, compensating for the need for individual rooms in each building within the Aspire Zone Foundation, bringing about 40% improved energy efficiency and 20% life-cycle cost savings. Supplied by the energy center, the chilled water will be carried to all the connecting buildings through an underground tunnel, while automation controls will regulate the flow to the stadium and each of the buildings.
