1. IEEE PES Technical Committee Prize Paper Award

Each Technical Committee of the Technical Council is entitled and encouraged to present a Technical Committee Prize Paper Award to the author(s) of an outstanding technical paper. This award consists of a framed certificate with inscription for the authors. These committee level awards will be distributed to the Technical Committee Chair or Technical Committee Awards Chair, or other designated representative, for presentation at a Technical Committee meeting.

This selection process is done by the individual Technical Committee and is a separate and distinct one from the Society-level IEEE PES Prize Paper Award nominations. Most committees choose to submit the same paper for Society-level awards as they selected for their Technical Committee Level Award.  

 

2. IEEE PES Technical Committee Working Group Recognition Award for Outstanding Standard or Guide

Each Technical Committee of the Technical Council is encouraged to present a Technical Committee Award to one Working Group in recognition for outstanding performance in the development of a Standard, Guide or Recommended Practice.  The document must have been published within the previous 3 years, and must be a new work or a significant revision of an existing document (consideration should be given to the significance and relevance of the work to the power and energy community). This award consists of a framed certificate to be presented to the Working Group Chair (and other officers, if any), and the Working Group members will receive a paper certificate. The committee level awards will be distributed to the Technical Committee Chair or Awards Chair, or other designated representative, for presentation at a Technical Committee meeting.  

This selection process is done by the individual Technical Committee and is a separate and distinct one from the Society-Level IEEE PES Working Group Award nominations. Most committees choose to submit the same standard or guide for the Society-Level awards as they selected for their Technical Committee Level award. 

 

3. IEEE PES Technical Committee Working Group Recognition Award for Outstanding Technical Report

Each Technical Committee of the Technical Council is encouraged to present a Technical Committee Award to one Working Group in recognition for outstanding performance in the development of a Technical Report.  The document must have been published within the previous 3 years, and must be a new work or a significant revision of an existing document (consideration should be given to the significance and relevance of the work to the power and energy community). This award consists of a framed certificate to be presented to the Working Group Chair (and other officers, if any), and the Working Group members will receive a paper certificate. The committee level awards will be distributed to the Technical Committee Chair or Awards Chair, or other designated representative, for presentation at a Technical Committee meeting.  

This selection process is done by the individual Technical Committee and is a separate and distinct one from the Society-Level IEEE PES Working Group Award nominations. Most committees choose to submit the same Technical Report for the Society-Level awards as they selected for their Technical Committee Level award. 

 

4. IEEE PES Technical Committee Distinguished Individual Service Award

This award consists of a plaque with a suitable citation.
