22 April 2023
IEEE PES Day was created in 2018 as a new platform to engage the IEEE Power & Energy Society members with our organization’s history and vision: “More Power to the Future.” The name was chosen in respect of the day that ‘Power Engineering Society’ changed its name to the ‘Power & Energy Society’ on April 22, 2008.
Since then, every year, IEEE PES members and volunteers celebrate IEEE PES Day during the entire month of April. Each year, a theme is selected following the guidelines of the 5 pillars of IEEE PES vision:
- Advancing global participation
- Educating the Future Workforce
- Industry Activity Trends
- Standards Leadership
- Participating in Regulatory Initiative
This initiative includes educational and humanitarian activities, youth programs, technical contests, lectures, workshops, hackathons, and thematic events. Over 700 ambassadors are selected each year, and they are responsible for organizing these activities in their local chapters and regions and advocating for a sustainable future powered by clean and resilient power and energy technologies.
With over 1,000 events worldwide in the last year, our global impact reached:
- 19,000 Participants
- 50 Countries
- 82 IEEE Sections
The theme of the 6th IEEE PES Day 2023 is “Powering a Climate Safer Future,” and Larissa Paredes Muse was appointed as the Chair for this year’s Organizing Committee.
