Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs)

The Power & 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. 
PES established the IEEE PES Industry Technical Support Leadership Committee to enhance the support provided to and cooperation with governments and regulatory organizations globally on technical issues.  In establishing these agreements, PES hopes to accomplish the following goals: 
  • Share technical needs within a specific area of the Power & Energy field of interest (i.e. grid interoperability requirements, USA bulk power system)
  • Identify technological gaps and approaches for addressing them
  • Individually, develop, disseminate and share information on advancements in technology and associated practices for planning and operations
  • Engage, educate and develop organization’s technical workforce through individual membership in PES
