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.
