57 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE: VOL. 57, NO. 11 NOVEMBER 2018 standards focused on overhead transmis- sion line structures. In addition to standards development, the NACE Education Activities Committee commissioned an online course support- ing corrosion identification, evaluation, and management specific to the power industry. The course focuses on identify- ing projects, forecasting funding, and developing strategies benefitting manag- ers, engineers, and consultants for opera- tors and service providers. Other sectors are represented by fossil (TEG 183X), geo- thermal generation (TEG 182X), and over- head transmission (TEG 368X), and have been very active in symposia and panel sessions. In the past five years, several symposia showcased issues across all sec- tors of the power generation and delivery industries. STG 41 is following through on the above initiatives, while also keeping an eye toward the future. The renewables sector has been identified as a new high-growth area due to gaps in engineering, construc- tion, and maintenance standards. Newly formed TEG 530X is targeting "Renewable Energy Facilities Design, Construction, and Commissioning," chaired by NACE members Brett Tossey, DNV-GL; and Steven Kung, a technical executive at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Addressing issues with solar and wind generation is anticipated to result in mul- tiple TG formations for standards and knowledge sharing. This and other activi- ties will also enable STG 41 members to apply innovations and lessons learned from our corrosion community including IMPACT and the NACE International Insti- tute to sustainably improve the safety, reli- ability, profitability, and affordability of global power generation and delivery for years to come. In summary, STG 41's active member- ship stands to empower our global corro- sion community toward sustainable stewardship of electricity generation and delivery infrastructure. We invite you to learn more about these efforts and oppor- tunities to get involved.
