CIGRE has announced the recipients of  its  biennial scholarship for young engineers to attend the Paris Session later  this year.

In announcing the awards, CIGRE Australia Executive Manager, Terry Killen,  said "this year saw a record number of applications, all of which were of a very high quality, which made choosing the recipients a challenging process for the review panel."

Mr Killen said that due to the large response and quality of the submissions, CIGRE had decided to award three(s) scholarships rather than the usual two(2).  

The recipients of the award receive a fully funded return trip to  Paris to attend the the Paris Session 48, which is the international leading event for  the Power System industry, gathering worldwide experts to discuss and learn about the future of the industry and to display the latest solutions for the whole value chain, from generation to distribution.  The CIGRE Session is a comprehensive event that offers - during a whole week - an extensive range of activities to more than 3600 delegates  and 9600 exhibition visitors.

The recipients of the 2020 award are:

Mandy Fish of TasNetworks

Nathan Crooks of AEMO

Tian Ting of AusNet Services 

CIGRE Australia congratulates the recipients and would also like to acknowledge the work and effort put into the submissions from all applicants.   

Due to the quality of submissions, CIGRE are looking at options to be able to better acknowledge and make all the submissions available.
