“The biggest challenge society faces is climate change. As responsible engineers we must not only design energy efficient buildings but take a proactive role in the community too.”
Crispin Matson joined the practice as a Director in 2009.
Crispin leads the development of renewable energy projects including generation, distribution and use throughout the UK and Ireland. He is responsible for large-scale energy masterplanning, district heating, CHP, biomass and biogas generation, solar energy, geothermal, onshore wind and energy efficiency projects. Crispin leads the continued development of these services, providing strategic direction and actively driving expansion. His emphasis is on technical excellence combined with energy-efficient design.
In addition to his strategic role, Crispin facilitates knowledge sharing across disciplines. He also promotes strong links with our overseas operations and related services in the wider Ramboll group.
With over 25 years in the industry, most recently at the leading edge of the design of renewable systems in buildings, his experience covers a wide range of project types and scales. Always client-focused, his solutions respond to the particular opportunities of each project. He explores every possibility in the service of delivering long-term value in a sustainable way.
Crispin is passionate about the role engineers will play in facing the challenges of climate change. Keenly aware of both the scientific and policy developments in this area, Crispin is a member of the ICE London Energy Panel as well as being a regular speaker at conferences on renewable energy and a director of a wind-farm co-op. Crispin takes an integrated approach exploring how energy is generated, transmitted, stored and used not only in buildings but also in the wider transport infrastructure. Crispin sees a role for Ramboll UK engineers in moving the country towards a zero-carbon economy, drawing on the Ramboll Group's expertise in Denmark and across Scandinavia.
A very positive person, Crispin is excited about the potential the Ramboll network has for tackling complex multi-disciplinary projects and sees a possibly unique breadth of expertise there that will enable the company to help society address the bigger issues. He is a strong believer in engineers being more proactive in their communities.
