Cigré in Sweden

Cigré, the International Council on Large Electric Systems, focusses on research and development of the production, transmission, and distribution of high voltage electrical energy. The organisation works for development and information exchange.

Cigré's General Secretariat is located in Paris with Swedish operations led by the Swedish National Committee, coordinated by Energiforsk.

Our work with Cigré includes member management, finance and accounting, administering and conducting meetings and symposia, as well as preparing Swedish researchers to present their technical reports at the congress in Paris. The Swedish National Committee also informs members and other stakeholders in Sweden about work groups' activities and what is happening in the organisation as a whole.

All members receive the bimonthly journal Electra and access to a database of articles on the generation and transmission of high voltage electrical energy published since 1972. Membership also includes information on upcoming seminars and the opportunity to participate in Cigré's conference held in Paris every two years.
