Chances are if you do any work related to electricity and engineering, you’ve heard of IEEE. 

IEEE stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, an organization dedicated to advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE serves professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronic, and computing fields and related areas of science and technology that underlie modern civilization.

IEEE’s inception goes all the way back to 1884 when electricity began to become a major influence in society. A small group of electrical professionals met in New York to form a new organization to support those in their newly emerging fields. 

As of 2020, IEEE had over 395,000 members in 160 countries serving members through technical journals, magazines, conferences, standards, and more. 

HeatSpring instructor, Tim Taylor, has understood the value of IEEE for the entirety of his career. Tim joined while in college and has been a member for over 35 years within the Power and Energy Society, which is a forum for sharing the latest technological developments in the electric power industry. 

Tim and his Electric Distribution Academy went through the rigorous process to become a provider of IEEE credentialed training. Tim’s course, Interconnection of Utility-Scale Solar to Distribution, is now approved for IEEE Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs), making the first IEEE credentialed course on HeatSpring. 

The Interconnection of Utility-Scale Solar to Distribution provides in-demand information for engineers working at electric utilities as well as engineering organizations working for solar PV developers. Enroll today to gain an understanding of utility distribution systems and the considerations in connecting utility-scale solar PV to distribution systems all while racking up IEEE CEUs/PDHs and NABCEP CEUs.
