ENERGY EFFICIENCY WORKSTREAM
The energy consumption side of the equation is a key factor in the next-generation grid. Transportation electrification, growing penetration of electric vehicles and their infrastructure, efficiency initiatives for large industrial consumers of energy, and related global policy goals are addressed, describing IEEE’s role in supporting these growing issues.
The IEEE Transportation Electrification Community coordinates broad and deep activities throughout the IEEE in the growing electrification revolution across transportation domains, including advances in electric and hybrid cars, more-electric ships and aircraft, rail systems, personal transport, and the motive, storage, power grid, electronic intelligence, and control technologies that make them possible.
The Sustainable ICT initiative seeks to foster the incorporation of green metrics and standards in design concepts for various technical domains.
