Call for tenders for publisher for CIGRE Green Books

At the initiative of various Study Committees such as SC A2, SC B1 and SC B2, CIGRE has decided to add ‘Green Books’ to its present publications (ELECTRA, Technical Brochures, papers for Paris Sessions …).

The green books purpose is to assemble the body of knowledge of its members in a set of scientific and technical reference books on 'networks’, which summarize the contributions of Study Committees covering areas of reference such as overhead lines, cables, transformers, substations, …

CIGRE members will have free access to the electronic version of all books in the series and these publications will also be of general interest for non-specialist readers.

The call for tenders is now closed and the publisher selection for CIGRE Green Book Series is currently in process. The choice of the provider will be announced at the beginning of November, 2013.

My best regards,

François MESLIER
Secretary General
