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

"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.

The IEEE Transportation Electrification Newsletter is open for submissions and the first issue is available today.
