The University of Nottingham say their new £9m Energy Technologies Building will be the UK's most advanced research facility into new energy innovations. They say the building will include:
- A testing facility for the University's Department of Architecture and Built Environment which will allow them to test the energy efficiency of buildings as well as an open space to carry out tests in daylight conditions.
- Laboratory space for low carbon research.
- A demonstration 'green' and 'brown' roof which will provide space for solar panels, as well as valuable ecological habitats.
- Seminar and exhibition rooms.
