WBG Power Center Seminar: IEA/PECTA activities

March 10 @ 10:00 - 11:30

WBG Power Center invites IEEE members to their seminar on IEA/PECTA activities

NEW: Slides and YouTube link at the end of this post.

About the IEA 4E Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA):

Power electronic devices incorporating Wide Band Gap (WBG) technologies are maturing rapidly and offer enormous opportunities for improved energy efficiency. 4E´s PECTA assesses the efficiency benefit of utilizing the emerging WBG technology, keeps participating countries informed as markets for Wide Band Gap technologies devices develop, and engages with research, government and industry stakeholders worldwide to lay the base for suitable policies in this area. Previous successful activities in IEA 4E include the Solid State Lighting annex. Another area is the Electric Motor Systems Annex, EMSA.
