NGN Events

The NGN organises a number of events for its members throughout the year.  At Technical Events, you can find out about the latest power system developments and network with your peers; at the bi-monthly Steering Committee meetings members organise the NGN; while the Annual General Meeting (AGM) combines these two and gives an opportunity for the members to direct the NGN’s future.  Our events can be found in the below, where you can browse the events calendar, register for upcoming events and access presentations and reports from previous events.

As well as the Paris Session, CIGRE hosts a number of events that NGN members can attend.  Please also check the UK National Committee events page for other events that may be of interest to NGN members.

If you have an idea for an NGN event, or would like to host one, please let us know by emailing

10 Years of NGN Evening Event: Monday 9th October, Manchester

In October 2017 we will be celebrating 10 years since CIGRE’s first Next Generation Network was set up here in the UK.

To celebrate this great milestone, CIGRE-UK NGN will be holding an evening event in Manchester on 9th October, very kindly hosted by Siemens. The event will be free to attend for everyone but you must register by Friday 15th September as space is limited. For registration and further information please click here.

Poster Session:

As part of the event there will be a poster session. Any NGN or CIGRE-UK member may participate. The criteria are as follows:

  • You must be either an NGN member, an Individual member or part of a Collective member of CIGRE.
  • You can present a poster either on a CIGRE working group you are involved in or on a technical project you are working on outside of CIGRE.
  • Posters should be focussed on sharing technical learning

If you would like to participate, contact us here to register your interest by Friday 4th August: please send us the Working Group name or a 2-300 word summary of the project.

Space will be limited and a decision on which posters will be accepted at the event will be made by the end of August.
