Energy Infrastructure Workstream

Energy Infrastructure Workstream

IEEE has a rich history in defining the design and deployment of the essential infrastructure physical hardware and software that comprise our global energy systems, along with guidance on safe operations to help protect utility workers (e.g. the National Electrical Safety Code). IEEE addresses infrastructure evolution as grid modernization accelerates to help assure safe, reliable and available energy to global customers.

Legacy Hardware

IEEE Technical Committees cover nearly every aspect of the electric power grid, with research, publications, standards and conference addressing topics from grid hardware/software to instrumentation, operations and economics.

The National Electrical Safety Code® (NESC®)

The National Electrical Safety Code® (NESC®) sets the ground rules and guidelines for practical safeguarding of utility workers and the public during the installation, operation, and maintenance of electric supply, communication lines and associated equipment.

Facilities Joint Use Program

The Facilities Joint Use activity provides a forum for electric power utilities, telecom and cable companies, regulators, etc. to coordinate and develop consistent approaches, methodologies and rules for the sharing and co-location of equipment with electric Transmission & Distribution (T&D) facilities.
