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.
On this website and throughout our offerings, you will find feature articles, podcasts, as well as links to tutorials and webinars on all aspects of transportation electrification from the world foremost experts (on the “Education” page of this website). Our Newsletter offers short and insightful technical articles on the state-of-the-art. TEC members also have access the Electrification Magazine, a monthly technical magazine covering advances in aircraft, automobile, ships and other subjects. TEC membership is free if you are already a member of a number of IEEE societies and groups (AESS, IAS, IES, ITSS, PELS, PES, RS and SA), only $10 otherwise.
In terms of conferences, you may want to check out the International Transportation Electrification Conference (ITEC), to take place in June in Chicago (www.itec-conf.com). This event is a great meeting place for industry and academia, with a majority of participants from industry. A similar event was to take place in China this year, but was postponed due to health concerns. Later, in August, an event dedicated to aircraft propulsion will take place in New Orleans (https://www.aiaa.org/propulsionenergy/program/eats). This is a hot new field for people in machine, power electronics, and systems, with incredible new aircraft and wing designs made possible by electrification.
A number of Transactions are also available, such as the Transactions on Transportation Electrification and the Transactions from our various society sponsors.
It has never been a better time to be involved with transportation electrification, and we are proud to help organize and disseminate cutting edge information on the subject.
