Power & Energy Society


The IEEE Power & Energy Society is a worldwide, non-profit association of more than 21,000 individuals engaged in electric power engineering. PES members are involved in the planning, research, development, construction, installation, and operation of equipment and systems for the safe, reliable, and economic generation, transmission, distribution, measurement, and control of electric energy.

The Power & Energy Society provides the world’s largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public. Members of the Power & Energy Society are leaders in this field, and they — and their employers — derive substantial benefits from involvement with this unique and outstanding association.

PES Mission Statement:

“To be the leading provider of scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for our members.”
