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 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
