Sustaining the future through GREEN TECHNOLOGY


IEEE is always working to enhance our quality of life and our environment, and IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) is at the forefront in teaming with top industry experts to develop standards documents that support this goal. These consensus documents include assessments of products for impacts on the environment; Smart Grid and renewable energy standards; standards for energy efficiency; and standards for power management in devices, systems, and networks.
