IPEC Limited was founded in 1994 with the objective of transferring cutting-edge technology to the power industry by generating a dialogue between academic research, industry, and commerce. This has enabled the power industry not only to fully exploit the research and innovation of scientists at the forefront of power engineering but to make an active contribution to the direction of future research and development. In turn, our company has been able to respond efficiently to market demands and develop commercially viable products which bring real monitoring and control solutions to the power industry.
