In May 2016 the IEEE Southeastern Michigan IA/PE chapter will host the IEEE IAS Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Technical Conference (I&CPS). I&CPS is a gathering of experts who work and conduct research in the industrial application of electrical systems. The Conference will have a full program of tutorials, technical papers, and working group meetings during the 4 days of the conference.
The conference will feature several events including a reception, a dinner/dance and an awards luncheon which will honor members of the IEEE Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department. The Awards Luncheon recognizes the winners of the Prize Papers Awards, Standard Medallion Awards, and the Department Achievement Award.

Compare this fact with the other major sources of electric generation. It makes you wonder why commercial nuclear power is not booming in the US as it is in China. Ever wonder why we cant reprocess spent fuel rods? If we did we could significantly lower the cost of electric energy generated by boiling water with nuclear fission. Maybe thats why. Note: Approximately 65% of a spent fuel rod can be reprocessed into a new fuel rod. Commercial Nuclear Power Plants does not contribute to acid rain, and do not belch CO2 as a byproduct, period. Significantly lower costs for electric energy encourages new industry, by adding more profit to the bottom line, or making the product more competitively priced, or a mixture of either. Either way, more Americans are working. Significantly lower electricity costs leaves more coins in everyones pocket. Imagine paying 40% of what you are currently paying for your electric bill. Maybe President Eisenhowers advisor that said, Nuclear power will be too cheap to meter! was right. On the other hand some people may not want to compete with commercial nuclear power. Biography: Mr. Gary L. Grueneberg P.E. has enjoyed a career in the commercial nuclear power industry. He is now retired after years of experience in the design, construction, licensing, operation and maintenance and modification of US commercial nuclear power plants. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in Michigan and is a senior member of the American Society for quality.
IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship plus Program Power and energy engineers work with some of todays most exciting technologies, developing solutions to problems that affect our lives and lifestyles. The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides scholarships and real world experience to undergraduates who are interested in power and energy engineering careers.

_______________________________________________________________________ “Our organizational structure is changing starting now and moving on into 2014. We can better serve our members by moving to a more defined structure to facilitate communication and reduce redundancy of efforts. We are all volunteers and as such we should be able work within our Section in areas we have interest, feel comfortable, gain leadership skills and are intellectually stimulated. At the same time we should have experienced leaders to guide us so past best practices are retained and poor practices are not repeated. All volunteers, positions and duties remain the same. Just the organizational structure changes for the better. If you have concerns, compliments, or an opinion, I would like to hear from you.” 2014 IEEE SEM Organization (12-17-13) Robert Neff Section Chair (Elect 2014) RLNeff1@gmail.com
