Power and Energy/Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Societies

The Queensland chapter of the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) was formed on October 22nd 1991, one of two chapters formed on that day. It is one of the oldest chapters in the Queensland Section.

The PES chapter is one of the most active in the Queensland Section and ranks highly against other PES chapters internationally. It has won several PES High Performing Chapter awards, as well as winning or coming second place in several PES Outstanding Chapter awards.

In February 2014 the PES chapter expanded its operations to include joint-activities with Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society members, thus becoming the PES/DEIS joint-chapter.

Please contact the chapter chair if you are interested in joining the chapter or serving on the committee.
