In true marathon spirit, IREC has had its running shoes on this spring, hitting conferences and meetings on all sides of the country. These events have been most fruitful and rewarding – well worth the long TSA lines and full planes. Having face-to-face time with many colleagues has given us new insights to make our work more meaningful.

First Student Conference for Developing the Future Power Engineering Workforce
An expected 40 students and faculty from universities across the country will participate in a first annual, one day student-centered conference April 28 on developing the power engineering workforce of the future. The first annual conference is a project of the U.S. Department of Energy’s new program: Grid Engineering for Accelerated Renewable Energy Development (GEARED). A part of DOE’s SunShot Initiative, GEARED is administered by IREC and the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA).
