FUNDING

Since 1992, funding for the awards is traditionally provided by Calor Emag Medium Voltage Products, a subsidiary of ABB.  In 2012  Calor-Emag (ABB) announced its intent to indefinitely fund the award until it notifies PISC otherwise.  ABB agreed to make such notification no less than 18 months before a symposium.  Should that happen, PISC would seek other sponsors .  The name of the sponsor will be prominently mentioned in all publicity connected with the award.
