Presentation: IEC and SDGs October 2019 icons

All sustainable development goals rely on electricity. Electric power is the golden thread that alleviates poverty and hunger, increases access to healthcare, education, clean water and light after dark. It facilitates daily chores and allows women to contribute differently to local economies, increasing their status. IEC work is behind the scene but essential. It is technology focused and only few IEC Standards can be directly attributed to a single SDG. This presentation outlines where and how the IEC contributes to SDGs. Rather than text, it uses clear icons for faster communication.


Presentation: Artificial intelligence across industries

This presentation provides an overview of the IEC White Paper on Artificial Intelligence which examines the potential of this technology in areas such as the home, manufacturing, transportation and energy. Although AI is still in its early stages, it is already profoundly impacting society, and new ethical and social challenges are emerging which need to be addressed.


Briefing paper: Maritime transport – en

Nowadays, maritime transport sustains worldwide trade and fosters economic development. Global maritime trade continues to grow annually and the number of seaborne passengers increases commensurately, as giant cruise ships become ever more popular. This continued growth poses a number of challenges which the shipping industry must address in order to continue competing with other forms of transport. New technologies are being investigated or used to help shipping meet these challenges. Most of them are dependent on electricity which is a green and particularly versatile form of energy.

Presentation: IEC and cyber security

Among the most critical challenges is the security of connected cyber physical systems. Very often little or no attention is paid at the design stage to ensure that connected objects are secure against malicious attacks.

The exploitation of cyber vulnerabilities of infrastructure systems is becoming an increasing threat to business and society’s overall security. Let me explain the unique way in which the IEC helps improve cyber security with the example of energy.

 


Briefing paper: Transmission and distribution (T&D) – en

With rapidly increasing global population and the industrialization of developing countries, comes soaring demand for energy  – particularly electric power. Transmitting and distributing electric power more efficiently and supplying it from renewable sources are ways of ensuring electricity requirements will continue to be met.
