Message from the Chair - March 2021

Welcome to the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community! 

 Our mission is to coordinate all things transportation within IEEE.  Honestly, our task gets bigger every day with applications that would have been thought of as “futuristic” if not downright crazy just a few year ago, from autonomous cars to fully electric airplanes and super high-speed trains.

The Future of Transportation for Reducing Emissions

by Kaushik Rajashekara, IEEE


The advancement of flying cars and eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicles is reshaping the future of transportation. In addition to helping us reach our destinations more quickly and cut road traffic congestion, flying cars and eVTOL vehicles could help dramatically reduce the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation globally.

New Fuel Cell Tech Points Toward Zero-Emission Trains

Lighter hydrogen converter design could give locomotives an efficiency boost

By Michelle Hampson

This article is part of our exclusive IEEE Journal Watch series in partnership with IEEE Xplore.

Diesel and steam-powered trains have been transporting passengers and cargo around the world for more than 200 years—all the while releasing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. In the hopes of a greener future, many countries and companies are eyeing more renewable sources of locomotion. The Pittsburgh-based company Wabtec recently unveiled a battery-electric hybrid train that they say can reduce emissions "by double digits per train." More ambitiously, some are developing hydrogen-powered trains, which rather than emitting greenhouse gases, only produce water vapor and droplets.

Women in Power and Energy - The Story of the Superwoman

This podcast is all about extraordinary stories of real women pursuing an academic career or currently working in electrical engineering stream, more specifically the power and energy industry. Listen to know more about the amazing work women across the globe have been doing in the different fields of power and energy, such as renewable energy systems, electric energy storage, and transportation electrification. Through the lens of Dr. Simay Akar, our guest for this podcast, learn about what motivates these determined women, what struggles they overcame, and how the gender gap in male-dominated fields, such as electrical engineering, can be closed.
