POWER, published continuously since 1882, is the undisputed bible of power generation technology. Each month, the magazine’s readers — 65,000 power plant engineers, technicians and managers, representing a $215 billion market — rely on the reporting and analysis of POWER’s editors for two “mission-critical” kinds of information: news of the latest techniques and trends in plant operations and maintenance, and insight into new technologies and equipment for generating electricity more cleanly and efficiently. Eight prestigious user conferences, owner/operator groups, and professional societies have recognized POWER by selecting it as their official magazine. POWER’s editors also publish The POWER Handbook, as well as dozens of other pieces of valuable reference material.

While POWER has been known for many years as a magazine, today it’s so much more than that; it’s a trusted brand that spans many forms of media including publications, trade events and conferences, and electronic media. POWER now provides the most important operations and maintenance information for industry professionals to improve best practices, safety, and productivity for the generation market in many new formats. POWER is the "go-to" resource in this industry with print, online, e-newsletters, webinars, videos, and conference offerings.
