PES GOALS 2011 Promote power industry involvement in PES Increase & retain PES membership worldwide, and make student, GSM and GOLD member participation more meaningful Assure that PES is in the forefront of energy topics and emerging technologies (smart grid, renewables, distributed generation, electric vehicles, storage, demand response, etc.) Expand services to members worldwide including education, conferences, publications, standards and PES Careers Improve the effectiveness of meetings & conferences Increase the benefits to PES from standards efforts Improve the effectiveness of technical committee organization
PES SMART GRID ACTIVITIES New Transaction Journals – Sustainable Energy – Smart Grid Conferences – ISGT Series – Smart Grid Day at T&D – SG Tracks at most major conferences Smart Grid Reprint Journals 2010 & 2011
PES SMART GRID ACTIVITIES Named Erich Gunther Member at Large in Charge of PES Smart Grid Activities Technical Committees Working Hard to Update and Create Standards Required for Smart Grid Evolution Wanda Reder leading IEEE Initiative to coordinate Smart Grid Activities across all of IEEE. – IEEE Smart Grid Portal (http://smartgrid.ieee.org/)http://smartgrid.ieee.org/ – IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter First Issue January 13, 2011 – Conf Calls every 2 Weeks
ISGT CONFERENCES ISGT 2010, Gaithersburg, MD ISGT 2010 Europe, Gothenburg, Sweden ISGT USA 2011 Anaheim ISGT Asia 2011 ISGT Middle East 2011, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia Nov/Dec ISGT Latin America 2011 ISGT Europe 2011, Manchester England Dec 5-7 ISGT USA 2012, January, Washington DC area January ISGT Europe 2012, Berlin, Germany, Oct 2012
PES Scholarship Program Partnering with power & energy stakeholders to increase the number of new engineers pursuing power & energy careers Targeting $12 Million over 3 year period Includes 3 year scholarships for Soph-Sr ($2k, $2k, $3k) plus industry internship Intended to supplement, not replace, existing funding sources
SUSTAINABLE ENERGY Part of Reason for PES Name Change Solar, Wind, Storage, et al NPEC is part of this – Need NPEC to collaborate with other TCs – Meet with rest of PES at conferences, JTC, etc – Be more visiblerest of PES wants to know what NPEC is doing! How can we make this happen?
COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS INITIATIVE Formerly part of IEEE HTC (Humanitarian Technology Challenge) Open source solar and wind power solutions for remote areas inaccessible by the grid In process of delivering 6 solar trailers to Haiti Wind solution by PES and other volunteers in Seattle area. Nearing final design.
TECHNICAL ACTIVITIES Networking 17 Technical Committees – + 6 Coordinating Committees 350+ Standards (40 % of IEEE total) 100+ SG Standards across all of IEEE – Working hard to get those updated
IEEE Smart Grid: Standards Over 100 standards spanning smart grid spectrum Examples: – IEEE C37.118: Synchronized phasor measurements – IEEE 1686: IEEE Standard for Substation Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) Cyber Security Capabilities – IEEE P2030: creating a guide for smart grid interoperability that sets the stage for future standards making – IEEE P1815: fast-tracking adoption of DNP3 as an IEEE standard to promote interoperability, strengthen security and maintain compatibility Coordinating with NIST and other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) 16
PES AWARDS Some awards not given due to lack of nominees Most folks dont take the time to consider nominating deserving individuals Deserving individuals are not nominated for IEEE Awards either PES Awards at http://www.ieee- pes.org/membership/awardshttp://www.ieee- pes.org/membership/awards
PES FELLOWS Nominees are way down Number of new fellows for 2011 was lowest in recent memory Many deserving PES members are not being nominated Noel Schulz leading team to look at Awards and Fellows. Info session planned for GM in Detroit
