The COVID19 situation is still preventing us to carry out face to face events. However, it could not stop the enthusiasm of our volunteers to conduct online technical events. From the event reports submitted to the PES Enews, it is found that the volume of online event has been increased almost four times and in each event, the number of participants is significantly increased. This is a very high time to enrich our online repository and concentrate on creating events with local language translation. It will help other members to explore the event content at a suitable time. I humbly request the event organizers to provide the link of recorded video with the article if possible. In this issue of PES Enews, we are honored to have an article from Hermann Koch, IEEE Fellow, PES-GB Member at Large Standards. In this article he shared various initiatives taken during the last five years for the development of standardization activities in PES. We included the list of PES members who have been elected to the IEEE Fellows Class of 2020. We also included the list of PES members who have received the IEEE PES Society Awards 2020.
Among several articles related to the PES Day 2020 events, we are presenting 12 events. Please note that we will be publishing the other events gradually after necessary editorial corrections (if you have not sent the editable format, please send). I humbly request you to submit articles, event reports, chapter history, significant achievements in PES Enews. I wish you stay safe during this global crisis.
