Society Spotlight

IEEE Power & Energy Society
Daniel C. Toland, CAE

The IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) has
experienced growth of membership, business
activities, and member services over the last
few years. At the end of 2019, the membership
increased to just over 40,000 members, and
the Society maintains the position as the second
largest IEEE Society. PES members see the value of
their PES membership and recognize that it is an
exceptional, cost effective way to acquire the latest
information about all aspects of the electric power
and energy industry.
In joining PES, you will have access to the IEEE
PES Resource Center, the most extensive library
in the world devoted exclusively to the power and
energy industry. There are over 2,000 items in the
Resource Center's vast array of industry-oriented
content, which is available to assist in your research,
presentations, or academic programs, and benefit
your professional development!
Young engineers may want to consider getting
involved in one of the 17 PES technical committees
or four PES coordinating committees. These
committees play an integral role in the development
of IEEE Standards and have a major impact within
the industry.
PES technical committees are responsible for the
technical activities in each of their sub-disciplines
within the broad power and energy discipline.
Activities include: the development of standards,
technical reports, technical sessions for various IEEE
PES technical meetings - paper sessions, poster
sessions, panel sessions, and super sessions -- and
identify, explore, and provide solutions to emerging
topics of interest within their sub-disciplines.
A detailed description of the various technical
committees and their activities can be viewed by
navigating to each technical committee's website
from the PES Technical Council website. You can also
learn about all PES Technical Committees in their
updated brochure.

If you are interested in renewable energy, you
may want to learn more about the PES Renewable
Systems Integration Coordinating Committee
(RSICC). This committee serves as a focal point
within PES for the identification of challenges
associated with the integration of renewable
energy resources (such as wind, solar, hydro,
and bioenergy), related energy carriers (such as
storage, fuels, and heat), and related electrification
applications (transportation, buildings and industry).
The RSICC serves as the point of coordination for
other organizations dealing with similar challenges
and establishes liaisons to coordinate and help
identify the appropriate technical resources within
the PES and other IEEE societies to address the
issues. The RSICC seeks opportunities to conduct
jointly sponsored activities to promote the sharing
of knowledge and experience among diverse
organizations working on similar issues through the
conduct of studies, symposia, workshops, panel
discussions, and tutorials.
If you aren't sure if a PES Technical Committee
is right for you, you can also get involved with
PES Young Professional activities. Members of this
group assist each other in evaluating their career
goals, polishing their professional image, and
creating the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse
professional network.
Dan Toland is the Director of Society Operations for
the IEEE Power & Energy Society. He is responsible for
managing and supervising the PES business segments
involving conferences, education, membership,
chapters, sales and marketing.
