Matthew Lumsden

Managing Director, Future Transport Systems Ltd

With 15 years experience in the low carbon energy and transport sectors, Matthew founded FTS In 2009 to provide specialist consultancy and project management in the field of electric-mobility with an emphasis on the relationship between electric vehicles (mobile energy storage) and energy networks.

Matthew worked in the renewable energy sector from 2000 for 10 years as Business Development and Managing Director of energy consultancy TNEI where he also delivered a wide range of renewables projects. In so doing he realised that electric vehicles represented a potential risk to the energy system as well as a clean technology and environmental opportunity.

Matthew founded Connected Energy in 2014 to commercialise the second life EV battery based energy storage systems developed by FTS.
