Due to tough sanctions of foreign states many field-specific events have become inaccessible for Russian specialists. Therefore, in 2022 the journal “ELECTRIC POWER. Transmission and distribution” played an important role in international information exchange being an official media partner of the 49th Session of CIGRE and CIRED-2022 Seminar. Being the member of GEIDCO, it provided its audience with reviews of several major events and webinars of this international organization.

The journal specialists reported about the events of PJSC Rosseti group of companies, including six meetings of the Scientific and Technical Council, the meeting of chief engineers, the inspection “Brand-new means of protection. Smart technologies”, the exhibition of innovative technologies of PJSC “Rosseti Center”, the production meeting dedicated to relay protection and automation, and automated control systems, the Day of presentations of PJSC “Rosseti Lenenergo” and many others.

The journal “ELECTRIC POWER. Transmission and distribution” representatives have visited the modern production site of power transformers with amorphous alloy cores in the city of Vladimir.

As for field-specific events intended for revealing the potential of young specialists and developing the practical skills of the personnel of power grid companies, the journal “ELECTRIC POWER. Transmission and distribution” has once again supported holding of the jubilee All-Russia competition in the field of high-tech innovative projects and developments “Energoproryv-2022”.

It has become a tradition for the publication to provide information support for the National Research University MPEI, to be a strategic media partner of the championship “CASE-IN’ in the line of “Power Engineering”. It was the first time the journal representatives visited the demo exam in Shchelkovski college, where the students proved their competence in “Operation of cable transmission lines” after the study carried out by WorldSkills standards  (the video is available).

In 2022 the journal issues were presented to participants and visitors of more than 30 field-specific exhibitions in Russia and CIS-countries.
