IEEE Standards and Initiatives for Sustainability

FS3: “Building an Enhanced IEEE Sustainability Community – New Initiatives and Standards Activities to Accelerate and Amplify IEEE Leadership in Supporting Sustainable Development Goals”

Date: April 24, 11:10 AM – 12:10 PM PT

Speaker: Rudi Schubert, IEEE Standards Association

Standards are an enabler of emerging technology solutions and a key to the interoperability of products and systems. The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) has published thousands of standards, developed by IEEE volunteers across the spectrum of technology areas covered by IEEE technical societies. In recent years, the IEEE SA has gone beyond standards, using its well established consensus building capabilities to address new technology issues at very early stages to incubate the next generation of standards based solutions. Additionally, the societal context of technology has become increasingly important in establishing the foundational considerations for future standardization initiatives. From the ethical considerations of artificial intelligence to new initiatives in sustainability and renewable energy, IEEE SA programs are working to stay ahead of rapidly evolving technologies and societal priorities. These programs are open, transparent and inclusive, welcoming the ideas and contributions of all. This presentation will provide an overview of IEEE SA programs relative to sustainability, IEEE initiatives to broaden participation of the sustainability community and emerging issues of interest to the SusTech community.

Bio:

Rudi Schubert is the Director, New Initiatives for the IEEE Standards Association, and lead for its Energy Practice. He leads the IEEE Industry Connections program, operating consensus building interest groups across a portfolio of emerging issues and topics including sustainability, renewable energy, autonomous and intelligent systems, big data, next generation vehicle technologies and many others. Before joining the IEEE, Rudi was a principal engineer for EnerNex, providing technical expertise on technology standards and testing programs to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). He also spent twenty years in progressively expanding leadership roles with Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bellcore) establishing technical criteria and implementation methodologies that become a mandated compliance and certification standard used by US telecom carriers for technology deployment.

Rudi has a 25+ year record of leading, developing and implementing industry standards and testing programs, and facilitating teams to achieve consensus expectations for functional performance, interoperability, product robustness and safety.  He holds bachelors and masters degrees in mechanical engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey.
