CIGRE’s mission is to produce and deliver technical information. This is done through two main means: technical conferences, with papers published and discussed; work of Study Committees and production of technical reports and other documents.

ELECTRA is the bilingual (English and French) journal of the Association. It is issued every two months and gives information on the work performed by the Study Committees and on the life of the Association. It is circulated free of charge to members, as an inherent asset of membership.

Available back issues can also be purchased, but exclusively by members.

After a session or a symposium, the papers and the contents of the discussions (for sessions only) are made available for purchase. They usually consist of one CD for the Papers and one CD for the discussions ("Proceedings").

Information is given hereafter for the most recent events.
