IEEE ESSB/SBC Committee Restructuring

To: Members of the IEEE Stationary Battery Committee
Members of the IEEE Power and Energy Society
Interested Parties in joining the ESSB and the Electrical Energy Storage Subcommittee

As most of you know, as a result of the restructuring of the IEEE Power and Energy Society Technical Committees, the IEEE Stationary Battery Committee will become part of the new Energy Storage and Stationary Battery Committee. The IEEE SBC will become a subcommittee along with other subcommitee(s) that will constitute the ESSB.

Much work has been done and a final ESSB organizational meeting will take place in concert with the regularly scheduled IEEE Stationary Battery Committee meeting at the Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Memphis on Jan 10-14, 2016.

In addition to the regularly scheduled IEEE SBC Working Group Meetings and General Meeting, the ESSB will meet on Wednesday morning at 8:00am – Noon to finalize its plan for submission to the Technical Council of the IEEE PES. Topics to be covered at this session include voting on the Scope of the ESSB, discussion of format for the new EES subcommittee, schedule of future meetings, and selection of recommended officers for the ESSB and EES. It is anticipated that the ESSB and EES will formally function as official groups within IEEE PES beginning in April 2016.

This will be an exciting time as we participate in a momentous new adventure within IEEE as well as the industry as a whole. Both of us encourage all receiving this letter to join us in Memphis in January. Please go to the IEEE Stationary Battery Committee website at http://www.ewh.ieee.org/cmte/PES-SBC or http://www.pestechnical.org for full details, schedule of meetings, and to register through the links provided.

We look forward to seeing you in Memphis.

Chair of the IEEE Stationary Battery Committee
