UK and China awarded Research-Council funded collaboration for 'low carbon cities' project

As part of China's visit to the UK, it was announced that researchers from both nations are collaborating to work towards reaching 'low carbon' status for cities. They have been awarded a combined £6 million in funding from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
The four projects funded are:
1.  Low Carbon Transitions of Fleet Operations in Metropolitan Sites 
(Newcastle University, Imperial College London, and Southeast University)
2.  City-Wide Analysis to Propel Cities towards Resource Efficiency and Better Wellbeing (University of Southampton and Xi’an University of Architecture & Technology)
3.  The ‘Total Performance’ of Low Carbon Buildings in China and the UK (University College London and Tsinghua University)
4.  Low carbon climate-responsive Heating and Cooling of Cities (University of Cambridge, University of Reading and Chongqing University)
