The world’s largest technical professional association honored Carlos Katz with the 2010 IEEE Herman Halperin Electric Transmission and Distribution Award for his “pioneering and vital research on moisture prevention in power cables (that) has extended product life and saved utility companies substantial money worldwide.”

The award, sponsored by the Robert and Ruth Halperin Foundation in memory of Herman and Edna Halperin and the IEEE Power & Energy Society, recognizes Katz for developing and understanding factors that influence life of XLPE- and EPR-insulated cable systems.
