We at IEEJ, desire to foster the more useful and extensive use of electricity in our society and individual lives. In order to make it realized, we think it is needed for us to take an initiative to provide arenas where people inside and outside IEEJ can communicate and collaborate such that our wide-range activities there can produce synergistic results.


Message from Chairperson


Thomas A. Edison started his electric utility service in New York City some 140 years ago, when incandescent light bulbs became available to ordinary people; since then, electricity has been penetrating into the society at the unprecedented pace in line with the innovations of related technologies. Thus, electricity is now a commodity as essential as water and air, and we can go as far as to say, “The world is made of electricity.” We are seeing significant changes through the entire supply chain from generation to consumption: introduction of solar and wind power generation on the supply side, and smart phones and EVs on the demand side.
We established this Committee on Social Engagement of IEEJ in February 2020, which is designed to disseminate knowledge about electricity which is now ubiquitously and conveniently used thanks to great efforts for its penetration and evolvement by many researchers and engineers.
Our Committee activities include publishing educational books, posting educational movies, providing materials to be used for experiments on electricity and helping local schools and communities hold such events as cultural lectures and scientific classes.  You can freely participate in those activities, whether you are IEEJ Members or not. Let’s work together to utilize these opportunities through sharing information, exchanging idea for implementation, and thereby connect electricity and society more tightly.

OMORI Takahiro; Chairperson 2021-2
