The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers PES T&D Conference and Exposition is scheduled for April 25-28 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. It’s the meeting’s first time in New Orleans in more than a decade. Over 9,500 attendees representing almost 40 utilities from around the world and roughly 650 exhibitors are expected to convene to reconnect with other energy professionals and explore a range of ideas driving change in the power and energy industry.
In partnership with Greater New Orleans STEM Initiative, IEEE will be hosting a competition for local high schools including teams from Haynes Academy, Ben Franklin High School and Kenner Discovery Academy.
