We collaborate closely with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee; a subcommittee of the Industrial Applications Society which provides a platform for leading practice discovery among electrical engineers who are responsible for electrotechnologies in school districts, colleges, universities and university-affiliated healthcare systems. In many cases, with research university power systems with upwards of 100 megawatts of base load supplying campuses and academic medical centers, many campus power systems are larger than investor owned, municipal or cooperatively-owned electrical utilities. Accordingly, in recent years, many large educational organizations are selling their power systems to private industry to own and operate.
Many educational institutions also own and operate their own telecommunications system and have significant data management systems.
The committee, founded in 2013, features open discussion, experience exchange, and solution consideration among thought leaders globally, every other week, in both European and American time zones. It collaborates closely with the IEEE Standards Association and the NFPA Electrical Division through IEEE SCC-18.
The committee meets every other Tuesday — 15:00 Central European time and 3:00 PM Eastern time in the Americas. Remote attendance is possible with the login credentials on the draft agendas.
