On April 24, 2018, to celebrate our first ever PES Day, PES Young Professional Region 1 Team coordinated with PES Boston Chapter to have a special session at the beginning of its monthly tech meeting hosted at National Grid. It was a very engaging tech meeting that 42 professionals in power and energy industry showed up to celebrate the PES Day special event and discussed the Challenges of Integrating New Technology into the Distribution System with guest speaker Jorge Valenzuela.
At the beginning of the meeting, PES YP Boston Team prepared several challenging questions such as PES and PES Day history, PES contributions to IEEE and so on. The trivia session went very well with special PES Day gifts and raffle giveaways. There was also a huge PES Day cake shared by everyone happily during the meeting.
