Energy research centre to be built in Nottingham

Energy research centre to be built in Nottingham
A new world class energy research centre is due to be the constructed at the University of Nottingham.

The £6.5 million Energy Technologies Building (ETB) is to be used by research teams working in the fields of bioenergy, hydrogen fuels, carbon capture and storage, sustainable architecture and biomass, among others.

Construction on the building, which will be located on the university's innovation park, is due to begin in early 2011 and should be completed by January 2012.

Professor Alan Dodson, pro-vice-chancellor for infrastructure, said that the centre will highlight that the university is in the "vanguard of global energy research".

"We'll be working hard with the architects and contractors to produce the university's, and one of the country's, lowest-carbon buildings – not an easy task with the laboratory facilities demanded by such a research centre," he added.

The building, designed by a team comprising Maber architects, Price & Myers and AECOM, will include earth duct passive cooling and will be looking to "maximise energy from renewable sources".

Zoe Robinson, ethical development manager at Warren Evans, highlighted recently that more young people must be attracted to careers in the energy industry if the UK expects to be world leader in the field.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800063801-ADNFCR
