Tuesday 16 Jan 13:00 – Dr Samantha Mudie, Head of Enegery University of Reading
Dr Sam Mudie is Head of Energy at the University of Reading as well as an energy reduction consultant specialising in the hospitality sector. Her doctoral thesis, “Energy Reduction in Commercial Catering”, has resulted in 8 award-winning peer-reviewed academic journal papers. This research measured the energy consumption attributed to appliances, menus and staff behaviours within the food service industry for the first time. Her subsequent projects have resulted in a range of successful energy reduction initiatives over the last decade, achieving millions of pounds worth of savings. She is currently working on multi-million pound heat pumps, a behaviour change campaign and several equipment replacement projects at the university and in the private sector.
