The NATF recently executed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the IEEE Power & Energy Society (IEEE PES).  The NATF and IEEE PES agreed to work together and facilitate interactions on matters of mutual interest pertaining to the electric transmission system.  Both groups seek to more effectively align efforts to address reliability and resiliency challenges due to significant changes in energy supply, demand, and technology.  Cooperation includes but isn’t limited to (1) sharing technical needs and addressing challenges for infrastructure planning, modeling, system operations, and cyber/physical security; (2) identifying existing and emerging technological requirements and needs and approaches for addressing them; and (3) developing, disseminating, and sharing information related to the planning, operations, and maintenance of electric transmission systems and their component parts.
