IEEE Power & Energy Society
The University of Texas at Austin branch of the IEEE Power & Energy Society is a student organization of engineers pursuing research, education, design, and development of electric power engineering. The society emphasizes renewable energy sources, but encompasses all aspects of power engineering: from the smallest scale power application, to power grid design problems, to power generation sources. While each member may have a specialty interest, the PES encourages a discourse on the future of power generation, economical operations, and environment-friendly alternatives.As a part of the worldwide IEEE PES community, the UT Austin branch continues to uphold the values and ideals of the society at large. Furthermore, the students actively seek to educate students, staff, faculty, and the surrounding community with regards to renewable energy sources and alternatives to current standards of power provision.
