The Interagency Advanced Power Group (IAPG) is a federal membership organization dedicated to the facilitation of information exchange in areas of advanced power technology.
The group emphasizes program coordination and dissemination of technical information among the member organizations to increase the effectiveness of government programs, avoid duplication, identify gaps and maximize success in research efforts in the fields of advanced power.
IAPG serves as the premier organization coordinating the collaboration and information exchange of advanced power research and development within the U.S. government and is broadly recognized by stakeholders as the essential forum for power science & technology (S&T) strategy and investment priorities.
- Air Force
- Department of Energy (DOE)
- Department of Transportation (DOT)
- National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
Formed originally in 1958 to fulfill a need in coordinating government research and development power programs, the six current member organizations continue this tradition of cooperation.
The IAPG is overseen by a Steering Group consisting of one principal representative and one alternate representative from each member agency.
Interagency coordination and information exchange are primarily conducted in the working group venue. These working groups focus on specific technical areas and report to the steering group. Working groups are added or removed as program and technology dynamics change. Members may be active in as many working groups as their agencies find beneficial.
- Chemical Working Group
- Electrical Systems Working Group
- Mechanical Working Group
- Renewable Energy Conversion Working Group
In addition, IAPG has a partnership agreement with the Propulsion & Power Systems Alliance (PPSA) to share information about advanced power.
