PELS Cyber-Physical Security (CyPhy)

CyPhy focuses on utilizing the expertise of PELS to define design phase hardware hardening and communicate the requirements within the field of interest. The CyPhy group publishes, holds the CyberPELS workshop, and focuses on Transportation Electrification, Data Centers, Distributed, and Transmission Grid Security. Both industry and academia are invited to collaborate on Initiative Activities through Committee work. This work is covered by TC 10.

Energy Access Working Group

PELS Energy Access Working Group

The PELS Energy Access Working Group is home to the Energy Access Community that oversees the activities and organization of the PELS Empower a Billion Lives Global Competition and PELS workshops dedicated to decentralized energy access. This group seeks interested members from various aspects of the Energy Access Community (e.g., business, policy, social impact, social responsibility, and technology) to join.


Technical Committees
