U.S. Next Generation Network

The Next Generation Network seeks to facilitate a successful transition into the Power systems industry by providing technical resources and networking opportunities.

The CIGRÉ U.S. Next Generation Network (NGN) was established for Early career professionals (less than 10 years experience) and Students in the Power industry.



Mentoring Program

The NGN mentoring program was established to provide an opportunity for young engineers to get involved in CIGRE working groups with limited or no knowledge in the subject area. Presently, there are NGN members participating in nine different working groups. Learn more about the NGN Mentoring Program.
