Cigré, the world forum for power systems

January 2017

Message from the President

Dear All,

I hope that you all had an enjoyable festive season and are enthusiastically prepared for 2017.  On behalf of the Steering Committee and Central Office I wish you all the very best for the New Year.  CIGRE is in the process of revisiting the Vision and Mission of CIGRE so that it is consistent and clear across the organisation.  This will be combined with other initiatives such as the revised e-cigre and Electra to increase benefit to members.  The revised e-cigre platform will enable all CIGRE documents to be searchable via available search engines such as Google Scholar, Yahoo, etc.  It is hoped the new system will be in place by end 2017. Electra is being relooked at to ensure more benefit to readers as well as widening the audience to include decision makers.  The new look Electra is hoped to be published in the second half of 2017.  In addition as President I hope to make more contact with the National Committees.  To this end I have linked the Steering Committee meetings with Symposia and conferences to support the local initiatives.  We are entering a challenging time in the industry which makes the work of CIGRE all the more important.  I hope that participation in CIGRE activities will assist you no matter what role you take in power systems. 

See you at a CIGRE function soon.

Rob Stephen
CIGRE President
