    Research

    Dr. James Kavicky has served as an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology since 1998. He currently works as an energy systems engineer at Argonne National Laboratory’s Infrastructure Analysis and Assessments Group. As part of his profession, Kavicky serves as an expert on electric power, natural gas, petroleum, and other infrastructures in reports for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

    He recently served as a contributing author and subject matter expert for the West-wide Energy Corridor Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement conducted for the DOE and is principle reviewer of the California Energy Commission proposal on “Optimal Portfolio Methodology for Assessing Distributed Energy Resources Benefits for Energynet.” He also serves as principle investigator for several research and development proposals concerning electric power infrastructure grid reliability.

    Kavicky is a life member of Tau Beta Pi and a member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and IEEE Power Engineering Society. He has acted as an Industry-Program Committee member and reviewer for the American Power Conference and has chaired or co-chaired a variety of sessions. He also referees papers submitted to the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems.
