Power Players - Our Partners
The Center for Integrated Electric Energy Systems (CIEES) supports industry/academia partnerships across New York State with a focus on renewable energy storage and integration. 
Strategically located on the Stony Brook University campus, the center’s academic, technological and networking capabilities are key to integrating low-carbon advances into the regional power grid – including 9 gigawatts of offshore wind power, a major step toward achieving state-government goals of 70 percent renewable electricity by 2030 and a zero-emission statewide grid by 2040.  
Advisor 411 - Our Board
Jelena Kovačević
NYU Tandon School of Engineering
Jelena Kovacevic
Jelena Kovačević was named dean of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in August 2018, becoming the first woman to head the school since its founding in 1854 as the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute.

The author of several books and award-winning scientific papers, Dr. Kovačević is the founder and co-chairwoman of the Northeast Regional Deans (NeRDs) council. Her research interests include biomedical imaging and multiresolution techniques such as wavelets and frames.

The dean’s many laurels include an IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Achievement Award and an IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society Career Achievement Award, for outstanding academic leadership in biomedical imaging research and education.
The CEBIP Advisory Board member received a Dipl. Electrical Engineering degree from the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Belgrade in Yugoslavia in 1986 before earning a PhD in electrical engineering from Columbia University in 1991. Prior to becoming Tandon School dean in 2018, she served as Hamerschlag University professor and head of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, among other academic assignments.
She also worked for 11 years on the technical staff at Bell Labs in New Jersey and was the co-founder and technical vice president of xWaveforms, a New York-based LLC.
