Welcome to MAKO CIGRE

Dear visitors,
on behalf of CIGRE Macedonia members and myself I would like to welcome you at the CIGRE Macedonia web site.

With the new name and logo we continue the old, good and successful story

As you can notice, there are changes on the web site! At the 19. General Assembly Meeting the name and the logo of the association were changed.
The changes are in line with the rebranding process that is under way at CIGRE. CIGRE is no more an acronym for the International Council on Large Electric Systems (Conference International des Grand Reseaux Electric - CIGRÉ), rather it is the name of this international association headquartered in Paris, established in 1921. In addition, CIGRE changed its logo and established strict guidelines for the logos of the national committees.

Consequently, the Assembly decided to change our old name into NATIONAL COMMITTEE OF NORTH MACEDONIA IN CIGRE. Furthermore, for better visibility the short name MAKO CIGRE will be used along with the new short name - CIGRE Macedonia.

More about us

CIGRE Macedonia is an association that has been established and acted in the field of power engineering for more than 20 years, aiming to connect the academic community, industry and other stakeholders and to initiate exchange of knowledge and experiences between them.

This goal is achieved by organizing various activities for the members of CIGRE Macedonia as well as activities opened for the public. Following our experience in celebrating 20 years of establishment of CIGRE Macedonia and all the events organized throughout the anniversary 2014, we continue to organize study visits for CIGRE Macedonia members and panel discussions where various issues related to electricity sector are discussed. Organization of these activities is a result of the volunteering work of our members and the successful cooperation with our industry partners.

The key activities of our association are related to the organization of the biannual CIGRE Macedonia conferences, which remain major events for the electricity community in our country. The 11th CIGRE Macedonia Conference shall be organized in the period 6-8 October 2019.

In the past few years CIGRE Macedonia has dedicated some of the activities to the youngest members of the electricity community – the students. We have supported the Student conference for energy efficiency and sustainable development (SKEEOR) in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018. CIGRE Macedonia has provided scholarships for the best enrolled students and awards for the best graduated students of the power engineering modules at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies at the Ss Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje and the Technical Faculty at the St. Kliment Ohridski University in Bitola. Although somewhat modest, the support is important for the future power engineers, who have the opportunity to access all the events organized by CIGRE Macedonia by being members of our organization.

CIGRE Macedonia is a member of CIGRE and takes part in the activities of the international association. Our members are active in the working groups functioning within CIGRE and thus contribute to the work of the association.

Please follow our web page for all news and activities related to the work of CIGRE Macedonia.
