Die Ergebnisse werden mit zusätzlicher Diskussion in
- der alle 2 Jahre stattfindenden internationalen CIGRE-Konferenz in Paris
- regionalen und nationalen CIGRE-Veranstaltungen
präsentiert und in
- technischen Broschüren
- der Mitgliederzeitschrift ELECTRA veröffentlicht.
Die Aktivitäten der Studienkomitees werden durch ein Technisches Komitee gesteuert, um z.B. inhaltliche Überschneidungen zu vermeiden.
