Junbo Zhao Receives 2022 IEEE PES Outstanding Young Engineer Award

It is our greatest honor to announce that Junbo Zhao has received one of the highest recognitions from IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES), i.e., 2022 IEEE PES Outstanding Young Engineer Award

Each year, IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) recognizes one engineer worldwide to receive the Outstanding Young Engineer Award. The IEEE PES Outstanding Young Engineer Award was established to recognize engineers 35 years of age or under “for outstanding contributions in the leadership of technical society activities including local and/or transnational PES and other technical societies, leadership in the community and humanitarian activities, and evidence of technical competence through significant engineering achievements.” The recipient will receive a plaque, up to $1,000 travel reimbursement to attend the IEEE PES Annual Meeting and have the privilege of designating a college or university to receive a $2,000 scholarship for an electrical engineering undergraduate.

IEEE PES is the second-largest society under IEEE and has nearly 43,000 members across the world.

We would like to congratulate Junbo once again on his amazing efforts and accomplishments!
