“I was introduced to AEI and the consulting engineering profession as a University of Wisconsin-Madison student when I took a class called ‘Electrical Systems for Construction,’ which I now teach. That helped bring my interest in design and electrical systems into focus, and I joined the firm in 2002. Since then, I have led over 100 industrial and energy and utilities projects, which has been personally interesting and rewarding.”
Kevin Krause joined AEI, designing electrical systems for the energy and utilities and industrial test laboratory markets, resulting in a depth of expertise in low-, medium-, and high-voltage electrical power and distribution systems involving microgrids, substations, emergency power, uninterrupted power sources, lighting, security, and communications. Supporting such clients as Deere & Company, Caterpillar, Cummins, and Harley-Davidson, his expertise spans the energy spectrum from the most efficient production through highly regulated use. Today, that breadth encompasses work for the U.S. Department of Energy, designing the Wind Dynamometer test facility and the complex Research Electrical Distribution Bus, advancing the integration of renewable energies at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
In his time at AEI, Kevin assumed project management roles and was named a principal of the firm in 2013.
Contributing to the further development of tomorrow’s industry professionals, he regularly lectures on electrical building systems at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
