Established in 1921 in France, the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE) is one of the leading worldwide organizations on electric power systems, covering their technical, economic, environmental, organizational, and regulatory aspects. CIGRE is underpinned by a global network of 60 CIGRE organizations referred to as the National Committees or NCs. These on the ground organizations have in-depth understanding of the local conditions in over 90 countries. The 16 study committees and more than 250 working groups are the main players of CIGRE activities.
Their main purpose is to foster engagement and knowledge sharing among power system professionals globally to enable sustainable provision of electricity for all.
Moreover, CIGRE aims to be universally recognized as the leading global community for expertise in all aspects of electric power systems.
