ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading management consulting firms specializing in energy and shared services, is pleased to announce the promotion of Kevin Hernandez to partner.
Kevin specializes in grid edge and energy storage, and he serves as the co-lead of ScottMadden’s grid edge community of practice, which focuses on helping clients adapt to the changes driven by the increasing penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs) such as distributed generation, storage, demand response, and microgrids. With nearly a decade of consulting experience, he has worked with a variety of transmission and distribution utility clients on issues ranging from post-merger integration to distributed energy resources.
“Kevin has done outstanding work for our clients in recent years. He has taken on leadership positions within the firm and is happy to share a helping hand and his expertise whenever needed. He has become an expert in the areas of electric vehicles, energy storage, and the regulatory issues associated with grid edge investments, and we look forward to his continued leadership and contributions within the firm,” says Brad Kitchens, president and CEO of ScottMadden.
Prior to joining ScottMadden in 2012, Kevin spent eight years as a member of the United States Navy. Kevin developed expertise in defense, government, and international development through previous roles working for the United States Senate and as the Communications & Outreach Manager at USAID, a U.S. government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential. Kevin earned a B.A. from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, an M.A. from the U.S. Navy War College in Newport, Rhode Island, and an M.B.A. from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
