Cigre Australia

global know-how



Cigré is the authoritative source for power engineering resources.  The e-Cigré on-line library is one of the most comprehensive accessible databases of relevant technical works on power engineering in the world.

The e-Cigré library is extensive and includes 6,800 references of publications, dated 1968 and after, out of which almost 3,000 - the latest - are available in electronic format. 

Cigré Australia actively contributes to this repository and our network of professional engineers has also produced a number of publications based on our learnings from our local environment.
