Power and Energy Chapter

Welcome to the IEEE UK and Ireland Power and Energy Chapter.

The Power and Energy Society (PES) 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 and Energy Society are leaders in this field and they — and their employers — derive substantial benefits from involvement with this unique and outstanding association. Its mission is 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”; our Chapter executes this mission in the UK and Ireland region.

PES embraces aspects pertaining to research, development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation and operation of equipment, structures, materials and power systems for the safe, sustainable, economic and reliable conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and usage of electric energy, including its measurement and control.

We organise technical, professional development and social activities, including technical talks, conferences and workshops, industrial visits, career development activities for student and young professionals and member specific activities. We welcome volunteers to help us organise or collaborate on activities and events, share ideas and provide feedback or provide us with financial funding to support our Chapter activities.

Watch Again | PES Workshop – Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) for Demand Response: Solutions for the Energy Crisis

The IEEE Power and Energy Society Switzerland organised this workshop that focuses on the latest developments in Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) for residential demand response and which was co-hosted by IEEE Power and Energy Society UK and Ireland Section.

Welcome to the IEEE PES UK and Ireland Chapter Women in Power (WiP) Goup.

The main mission of WiP is to advance the world through the creativity and innovation of diverse leadership, and to foster the careers, connections and talent of women in the power industry to achieve their full potential and become leaders of the future.

The WiP initiative serves ambitious, professional women in the power and energy industry looking for leadership positions and career advancement – the skills, networking and mentorship offered benefit women throughout the industry, whether they are engineers, attorneys, policy makers or accountants.  This initiative is not exclusive for women, therefore, everybody is welcome to join and participate.

Our role is to promote female power engineers in academia and industry, liaising between those who have established themselves in their respective area and are now serving as role models or mentors, and early or mid-career engineers who seek guidance and advice on their way to becoming leaders themselves.
