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.

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.
