A £6.5m research centre to develop low carbon technologies is to be built in Nottingham.

The building at the University of Nottingham's Jubilee Campus will include an energy testing facility and a rooftop laboratory.

Designers are aiming to make the Energy Technologies Building (ETB) one of the lowest-carbon buildings in the country.

Construction is expected to start in early 2011 with completion due in January 2012.

The project is being jointly funded by the university and the European Regional Development Fund.
