(Authorized as Power Division on June 20, 1922; name changed to Energy Division on July 14, 1978) Purpose: to promote the integrated planning and management of efficient energy systems consistent with social, economic, and environmental objectives and constraints; to advance the role of the civil engineer in the siting, design, construction and operation of facilities for the extraction, conversion, distribution, and use of energy resources; to provide, through publications, technical committee activities and meetings, leadership within ASCE on technical, professional and policy issues that bear on energy; and to encourage cooperation with other organizations with similar goals.
The mission of the ASCE Energy Division is to provide leadership on technical, professional and policy issues that bear on energy in all its forms and uses. To do this, the Energy Division will:
- Promote the integrated planning and management of safe, efficient energy systems consistent with social, economic and environmental objectives and constraints;
- Advance the role of the civil engineer in the siting, design, construction, and operation of facilities for the extraction, conversion, generation, distribution, and use of sustainable energy resources;
- Collaborate with other ASCE units and external organizations with similar goals.
Benefits of Participation
The benefits of participation in the ASCE Energy Division, particularly on the Technical Committees are:
- the opportunity for professional development,
- mentoring of (energy) industry personnel,
- networking opportunities for problem solving,
- technology transfer and forums for discussing (energy) industry problems and solutions, and
