The future of public DCFC infrastructure
Mr Lumbley is Co-Founder of Rove Charging and a career energy development professional with more than 20 years experience in solar, energy storage and EV infrastructure experience. After starting his energy career in the oil and gas sector, he transitioned to focus exclusively on clean energy projects in the early 2000s. Since then he has worked for 2 of the top 3 utility scale solar development firms in the US before shifting his focus to the EV charging infrastructure sector. As a result, he and his team bring a unique perspective to the energy aspect of EV infrastructure, while also focusing on dramatically improving the end user experience. The result is delivering an energy intelligent solution that mitigates grid impacts while dramatically improving the public charging experience for EV drivers.
