Power & Energy Society

Welcome to Boston’s Power & Energy Society, winners of the PES 2010 and 2013 Outstanding Large Chapter Award!

The mission of the Power & Energy Society as a whole is to be the leading provider of scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for our members. As the Boston Chapter, we adopt this statement as our mission, and strive to tailor it to serve the Eastern Massachusetts community.

We currently have over 550 members, including students and associates, in and around the Boston area and an active Technical Meeting program. Some of the topics covered recently include Wholesale Energy Markets, Energy System Integration, Substation Automation and Grid Modernization in Massachusetts. We also offer courses for continuing education in a number of topics such as Microgrids and Energy Storage. The highlight of each year occurs in May, when we hold our annual banquet with a distinguished speaker and honor our Outstanding Engineer Award winners.

All these events need volunteers to make them happen. We are always looking for new people to help out. If you would like to help us make our Chapter even more successful please let us know.

All of our technical meetings, with the exception of May’s Annual Banquet, are free and open to the public. Please do join us at any time; the meetings are normally held on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM, preceded by refreshments and networking at 6:00 PM. Our website will have more information regarding the topic and location for each meeting.
