IEEE Power & Energy Society Announces
2016 "Plain Talk" Schedule
"

LAIN TALK ABOUT THE
Electric Power Industry"
is a three-day series of
courses targeting power-industry
professionals who are not engineers
but who need more understanding
of the technical side of the industry
in which they work. New engineers
or engineers new to the power
industry also take these courses. The
first day consists of an overview of

the electric power industry, and days
two and three provide more detail
on distribution systems and transmission systems, respectively.
Students can take one, two, or all
three courses.
The schedule for 2016 is as follows:
x 14 June 2016, live online
x 19-21 July 2016, Boston, Massachusetts [collocated with the
IEEE Power & Energy Society
(PES) 2016 General Meeting]
x 12-14 September 2016, Columbus, Ohio (collocated with the

PES International Conference on
Transmission & Distribution
Construction, Operation, & LiveLine Maintenance)
x October 2016, online (date to be
announced)
x 1-3 November 2016, Portland,
Oregon
x 6-8 December 2016, Phoenix,
Arizona.
If you would like to develop a new
course for the "Plain Talk" series,
please contact Susan Koval (s.koval@
ieee.org).

IEEE Power & Energy Society
Scholarship Plus Initiative
HE IEEE PES SCHOLARSHIP
Plus Initiative recognizes
highly qualified electrical
engineering undergraduate students
with multiyear scholarships and
assists in connecting them with relevant and meaningful career experiences. The goal of the program is to
increase the number of well-qualified, entry-level engineers to the
power and energy industry.

Since the program launched in 2011,
587 students have received 942 scholarships from more than 150 universities,
including Ivy League colleges, flagship
state universities, and prestigious
engineering colleges from Canada,
Puerto Rico, and the United States. The
program is having a positive impact
within the industry. Ian from Stony
Brook University noted, "To me, being
named a PES Scholar is a true honor. It
is a constant reminder that there is a
demand for younger engineers to step
into the power engineering industry."

There are multiple ways an organization or person can get involved
in the program:
1) become a mentor
2) promote the program to students
3) provide a financial contribution
4) offer internship/cooperative
opportunities to PES Scholars.
Find out how this program is helping
to address the problem of the shortage of engineers in the power and
energy industry by visiting the IEEE
PES Scholarship Plus website (www.
