IEEE Highlights Electrified Transportation Trends with Launch of Industry Newsletter
PISCATAWAY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
IEEE (News - Alert), the world's largest professional organization advancing technology
for humanity, today announced the launch of the new IEEE Transportation
Electrification Newsletter. A monthly online publication, the IEEE
Transportation Electrification Newsletter features practical and timely
technical information and forward-looking commentary on electrified
transportation developments and deployments around the world. Designed
to foster greater understanding and collaboration, the newsletter brings
together leading experts to exchange information and discuss technical
challenges and advancements in transportation electrification. The
inaugural issue of the IEEE Transportation Electrification Newsletter is
now available by registering online for a complimentary subscription at http://electricvehicle.ieee.org/newsletter/.
"The world is desperate to not just document problems like exponential
vehicle pollution and over-dependence on fossil fuels but to hear about
positive examples where economic and environmental recovery is occurring
through electrified transportation solutions and using domestic
generation sources. This eNewsletter will span the futuristic view of
what is possible and show how scientists and practitioners are applying
cutting edge methods to move technology forward for all types of
electrified vehicles," said Micheal Austin, Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE
Transportation Electrification Initiative Newsletter and Vice President
of BYD America.
Distributed to subscribers via email, the IEEE Transportation
Electrification Newsletter will address transportation electrification
that spans four main domains: terrestrial, nautical, aeronautical and
commercialmanufacturing. Important subtopics will include the
convergence of transportation and electric energy verticals, real world
deployment experiences, the effects of political oversight, the role of
professional organizations in fostering the future through standards
development, and the role of education. The newsletter will also cover
technical challenges and advancements in fields enabling transportation
electrification, including batteries, power electronics, electric power
infrastructure, fuel cells, advanced charging, telemetrics, and schemes
for drivetrains and the connected vehicle.
Exclusive content presented by notable visionaries and leaders as part
of the first IEEE Transportation Electrification Newsletter include:
"In the New Energy Revolution (News - Alert), Electrical Vehicles become Reality"
co-authored by Micheal Austin, Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE
Transportation Electrification Initiative Newsletter and Vice
President of BYD America and Russ Lefevre, Chair of the IEEE Steering
Committee on Electric Vehicles;
"California Program Speeds Deployment of Hybrid and Electric Buses"
by David Kantor, IEEE Resource & Author and CALSTART's Deputy Project
Manager for the California Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus
Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP);
"Volt User Experience, No Hype, Just the Facts" by Dave Tuttle,
IEEE Member and Researcher at the Pecan Street Consortium/University
of Texas Plug-In Vehicle and Smart Grid Research Project; and
"Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) for Electric Drive Applications" by
Ravinder Venugopal, IEEE Resource & Author and Director of Advanced
Technologies at OPAL-RT Technologies, Inc.
"IEEE has been at the core of public policy and research practice on
many ground-breaking technologies since its inception. I am confident
that the IEEE Transportation Electrification Newsletter will become the
magnet for this important discussion and debate and aid IEEE in
advancing excellence in transportation electrification for the benefit
of science and humanity," continued Mr. Austin.
