The History of CIGRE



CIGRE, the International Council on Large Electric Systems, celebrates its ninetieth anniversary in 2011. Since its creation in November 1921 CIGRE has successfully promoted the development and exchange of technical information on electric power systems in a spirit of cooperation, impartiality and service. This book, by bringing back to life the ninety year history of CIGRE and highlighting its interactions with the international development of electric power systems, confirms the important role that CIGRE has played and intends to continue to play in this key field of human endeavour.
