Professor Peter Lund was given the Jiangsu International Science and Technology Cooperation Award on 22 January 2021. The recognition was granted for his input into research cooperation with China and Jiangsu Province in renewable energy sources. The cooperation has led to significant results in the development of solar energy, fuel cells, energy storage, and energy systems. Since 2013 he has also actively helped develop cooperation between China and the European Union.

Jiangsu Province is known for its research into clean energy and artificial intelligence, among other things. It will have a central role in China's coming energy transformation, which is aimed at achieving carbon neutrality in 2060.

Peter Lund holds an honorary professorship at Southeast University, the university in Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu Province.

‘China is one of the world's leading countries in clean energy. It is also embarking on a great leap forward in the reduction of emissions. Therefore, it is a most interesting case for researchers in the field’, Peter Lund says.
