IEEE launches Smart Grid Web Portal
IEEE's new content-rich web gateway provides intelligence, education, and news on the global Smart Grid network.
IEEE launched the IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal , which is a integrated gateway to Smart Grid intelligence, education, and news from IEEE and other expert sources. The portal is designed for manufacturers, policymakers, educators, academics, governments, engineers, computer scientists, researchers, and others involved in the power and energy, IT, and communications industries.
The IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal is the first phase of IEEE Smart Grid, created to bring together IEEE's broad array of resources to provide expertise and guidance for those involved in Smart Grid worldwide.
"Contributions from across the global power and energy, communications, and IT industries, as well as government and academia, are needed to ensure successful implementation of Smart Grid throughout the world. The IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal is designed to be an essential resource for anyone involved in Smart Grid, whatever their industry or technical discipline," said Wanda Reder, 2008-09 president of the IEEE Power & Energy Society and chair of the IEEE Smart Grid Task Force.
IEEE Smart Grid leverages IEEE's long-term commitment to global modernization and optimization of the power grid to make it more reliable, efficient, secure, and environmentally neutral. IEEE leverages its strong technical foundation to develop standards, best practices, publications, conferences, and educational opportunities for the Smart Grid network.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
