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.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
