IEEE Power & Energy Society's IEEE Electrification Magazine Receives 2014 APEX Award for Publication Excellence
PISCATAWAY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
IEEE (News - Alert), the world's largest professional organization dedicated to
advancing technology for humanity, today announced that IEEE
Electrification Magazine, published by the IEEE Power & Energy Society
(PES), received an APEX award for publication excellence.
In its 26th year, the APEX Awards for Publication Excellence is an
annual competition for corporate and nonprofit publishers, editors,
writers and designers who create print, Web, electronic and social
media. The APEX 2014 awards were based on excellence in graphic design,
editorial content and the success of the entry in achieving overall
communications effectiveness and excellence.
In November 2013, IEEE PES unveiled its IEEE Electrification Magazine, a
quarterly print and digital publication dedicated to disseminating
information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric
vehicles, ships, trains, planes and off-grid applications. In addition,
the magazine is co-sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society
(IEEE IAS) and the IEEE Power Electronics Society (IEEE PELS).
"Receiving an APEX award is quite an honor and the IEEE Power & Energy
Society is gratified that the IEEE Electrification Magazine - as a new
publication - is already making a significant impact on the industry and
beyond," said Saifur Rahman, editor-in-chief for IEEE Electrification
Magazine and IEEE PES fellow member. "The world of electrification is
experiencing a surge as renewable energy, energy storage, power
electronics and more are top-of-mind among our readership. The idea that
microgrids and off-grid applications are becoming more and more 'main
stream' is exciting. I welcome IEEE Electrification Magazine's obvious
Each edition of the magazine provides news, analysis and insights on
electric vehicles and other forms of transportation. Readers have access
to comprehensive and in-depth technical analysis from engineers in the
field of advanced electrification. While the publicatin covers the
technical aspects of the market, it also provides perspectives on
non-technical areas such as business, environmental and social concerns.
