Powertech 2017

Thanks to all of the 689 registered delegates and attendees who made the IEEE PowerTech Manchester 2017 a great success!


On behalf of the IEEE PowerTech International Steering Committee and the Local Organising Committee I cordially invite you to attend the 12th IEEE Power and Energy Society PowerTech Conference, PowerTech Manchester 2017. The conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) and hosted by the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Manchester, UK.

PowerTech is the IEEE PES anchor conference in Europe and has been attended by hundreds of delegates from around the world. It will be an international forum with exciting programme for individuals working in industry and academia, to network, exchange ideas, and discuss the results of their research and development work. The conference will be the largest gathering of international researchers and practitioners working in the general area of electrical power engineering outside the USA in 2017 and possibly the largest such conference ever held in the UK and certainly the largest to be held in the UK for a generation.

The conference will have 4 Tutorials and 600+ Technical Presentations including 500+ Technical papers (of which 70+ are IEEE PES Transaction Papers), 90+ presentations in Special Sessions, and 10 Keynote Speeches.

Manchester, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, developed from the first industrialised city in the world in 19th century to the second most populous urban area in the UK with rapidly growing culture, media, music, sports and transport connections enjoyed by 2.55 million people. By taking part in PowerTech Manchester 2017 you will contribute to the long history of Manchester, leading the way in industrial development, this time Towards and Beyond Sustainable Energy Systems.

I am looking forward to meeting you in Manchester in June 18-22, 2017.
