The IEEE Power & Energy Society (IEEE PES), formerly the IEEE Power Engineering Society, is the oldest society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) focused on the scientific and engineering knowledge about electric power and energy.[1][2][3]

PES Technical Council

On 14 January 2016, the IEEE PES Governing Board approved the PES Technical Committee reorganization. This resulted in twenty coordinating and technical committees as follows:

  • Intelligent Grid and Emerging Technologies Coordinating Committee
  • Marine Systems Coordinating Committee
  • Wind and Solar Power Coordinating Committee

Technical Committees
