IEEE Smart Village (ISV) co-locates a series of workshops, presentations and round-table discussions each year at IEEE’s annual POWERAFRICA CONFERENCE (PAC). Two of IEEE’s larger societies, the Power & Energy Society (PES) with 40,000+ members, and the Industrial Applications Society (IAS) with 14,000+ members joined forces to coordinate the latest international forum on clean and affordable energy pathways in support of the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs).

This year’s PAC will last 5 days from the 23rd to the 27th August, 2021 and will be held Virtually.

ISV activities will kick off on Tuesday the 23rd with all-day networking sessions, plenary sessions, exhibitions, tutorials and parallel tracks. Between the events, the ISV delegation will partake in a selection of PowerAfrica sessions and events as well as conduct its own semi-independent series of programs.
