Dr Eng L. Ofetotse


Eng is a senior lecturer in built environment lecturing in building services engineering, renewable energy and sustainability as well as commercial construction technology. She is currently module leader for Applied Mathematics and Computing Applications (EG4030), Commercial Construction Technology (CE5104) and Sustainable Construction: Technology and Practice (CE7206) and also teaches across other different modules. She has a degree in quantity surveying (BSc hons.) and a PhD in energy and environmental engineering both from the University of Reading. She is also a fellow of the higher education academy (FHEA).


Eng's research interests covers a range of engineering technology applications such as characterisation of household electricity consumption; energy load monitoring; energy profiling; energy modelling; renewable energy; smart-grids; building performance simulation and optimisation. Eng is a Principal Investigator of the Innovate UK funded project SwanaSmartStore (https://twitter.com/SwanaSmartStore) which is aimed at delivering a clean, reliable and affordable energy solution to low-income households in Sub-Saharan Africa.
