PARIS, 16-Aug-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — The Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE) invites representatives and specialists from the worldwide power industry to participate in its biennial session. The 46th CIGRE Session will take place at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France from 21 to 26 August 2016. CIGRE is an international non-profit association for promoting the collaboration and knowledge exchange of international experts to improve present and future electric power systems.
The CIGRE Session 2016 is a unique opportunity to meet, listen to and discuss with international power system experts from transmission system operators (TSOs), distribution system operators, energy-related organisations, universities or technology companies. The Session provides official presentations, panel discussions, technical meetings and poster sessions. A social side program with welcome drinks and coffee breaks encourages further discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. The main program will be complemented with a technical exhibition held in the same location presenting new services, tools, equipment, materials and advanced technologies from the field of power systems. Together the CIGRE Session and the technical exhibition assemble more than 8,500 senior executives, engineers and specialists from all over the world.
The coordination between TSOs belongs to the main themes of this year’s CIGRE Session. Therefore the participation of TSO representatives should be particularly beneficial. The other major topisc include the integration of renewables, super grids and smart grids, environment and sustainability, public acceptance of power systems and publicity work, active distribution systems or ecological equipment design. Those whishing to attend the CIGRE Session 2016 can register directly on the CIGRE homepage.
