CIGRE’s mission is to produce and disseminate technical information.
This is achieved through:
- Technical conferences, where papers are published and discussed
- Study Committee work and production of Technical Brochures and other documents
The Guidelines for writing papers for publication can be found on the page "Guidelines".
Which publications are available and how to order them is specified in the official document "CIGRE Technical Information" (03/2007)
The papers related to Sessions, Symposia or other events are supplied to delegates upon registration.
The CD of papers for Sessions and Symposia and the CD of contributions to discussions at Sessions -"Proceedings"- are put on sale after the events.
ELECTRA is a bimonthly journal, reserved for CIGRE members.
It provides information on the results or the progress of the technical activities of CIGRE, on the life of the Association and on the events organised.
Over 8000 references of publications, dated 1968 and after, can be accessed from our online library, one of the most comprehensive accessible databases of relevant technical works on power engineering.
Publications can be
- downloaded free of charge, for members only
- and/or ordered, for all professionals in Power Systems (CDs, electronic copy (pdf))
