Global know-how is a valuable asset for any organisation. However, knowledge for knowledge’s sake is not a solution to the challenges Southern Africa’s power industry is facing today or in the future. As a result, Cigre Southern Africa mission is to support our members in leveraging our global network with a local focus in mind.
We are empowering Southern Africa’s power industry professionals with the know-how and skills they need to develop enhanced technical solutions for their organisations. These solutions select the best and most appropriate the world has to offer to meet the needs of the Southern Africa’s market and wider community.
Grounded in pragmatism
Cigre’s network of professionals has real world practical experience in a wide range of environments and challenges.
So, whilst Cigre does provide members with the theoretical input they might need, our technical panels and working groups are dealing with real world situations and developing solutions that are firmly grounded in pragmatism.
The Cigre SA National Committee is the oldest on the African continent, and only one of three. Only Algeria and Egypt have NCs. There is therefore a need to increase participation in sub-Saharan Africa in order to influence global solutions and standards.
