As a leading, century-old engineering, procurement, consulting and construction company specializing in conventional, renewable, and distributed power generation, transmission and distribution, microgrids, and behind the meter services Black & Veatch understands the value of contributing to IEEE. “Whether it’s through standards, technical committees, publications, conferences or the IEEE Foundation, Black & Veatch’s contributions ensure that the industry is ready for both today and tomorrow,” shared Dave Abrams, Executive Vice President, Power Delivery at Black & Veatch, which has made recent donations to the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Scholarship Plus Initiative. 
According to Abrams, the PES Scholarship’s focus on stewardship, innovation, technical advancements and education align well with Black & Veatch’s founding principles and core values. “The IEEE PES Scholarship builds on our philosophy that the best results come from combining our time, talent and monetary contributions to supporting sustainability and the environment and to making a difference in the communities where we work and live,” he said.
“It’s important to give back and to leave the industry in a better place than when we joined it,” concluded Abrams of the importance Black & Veatch places on supporting IEEE. “We’re confident that both today’s leaders and tomorrow’s bright young minds will build on the solid foundation that IEEE has created to ensure that we’re prepared to meet the continually-changing demands in the power industry.”
