global know-how



Founded in 1921, CIGRE, the Council on Large Electric Systems (in French: Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Électriques), is an international non-profit association for promoting collaboration with experts from all around the world by sharing knowledge and joining forces to improve electric power systems of today and tomorrow.

CIGRE counts more than 14000 experts from all around the world working actively together in structured work programmes co-ordinated by 16 Study Committees, overseen by the Technical Committee. Their main objectives are to design and deploy the power system for the future, optimise existing equipment and power systems, respect the environment and facilitate access to information.

The Australian National Committee was established in 1953 and has its office in Sydney, with members across continental Australia and New Zealand.
