IEEE PES and DOE Memorandum of Understanding

On May 5, 2016 in Dallas, Texas at the 2016 IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Transmission & Distribution Conference and Exposition, IEEE PES and the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to address grid modernization challenges with a focus on the distribution level.

Formally signed into order by Patricia Hoffman, Assistant Secretary of Energy, and Patrick Ryan, IEEE PES Executive Director, the MOU concentrates on both planning and operational challenges that include integrated resource planning and schemes for coordination, control, and information management. IEEE USA, IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA), IEEE Smart Grid, and other IEEE societies will join IEEE PES in collaboration on the MOU, which includes four cooperative areas with the DOE: standards, technology, conferences, and education.
