Cigré, the forum for electrical innovations

September 2012

CIGRE monthly newsletter

Dear Colleagues, dear friends, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me first of all to thank you for all the positive feedback I received for this Session.

2012 is the edition where records were broken: 3200 participants attended the session (3000 in 2010), 3626 visitors attended the exhibition (2385 in 2010).

For the Opening Ceremony; we had the chance to hear Mr Liu Zenhya, the President of the State Power Grid of China. He presented us with a new intercontinental vision of the trade of electricity, proposing exchanges from China to Europe through EHV DC links. No doubt this will concern a large amount of CIGRE activity in the future! Most of the Session presentations are available online.

Another modification we introduced this year was to hold the official reception under the Pyramide du Louvre which was a good success!

Even if the global feedback for this session has been positive, please send me any suggestion to improve it in 2014, by sending me an e-mail at

I look forward to see you again at CIGRE Session 45.

My best regards,

François Meslier

Secretary General
