The history of the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association is closely related to the formation and development of electrotechnics and the electricity industry in Hungary. Participants of founding the organization and managing the work of the association included prominent persons such as Ottó Titusz Bláthy, Miksa Déri, Kálmán Kandó, József Liska, Á. Géza Pattantyús, Károly Zipernowsky, László Verebély, Sándor Straub. Following its foundation, the association quickly became the largest national level professional electrotechnical organization in Hungary.
The nearly 5000 members of our association are organized according to regions and professional principles. 53 regional operations and 20 independent professional organizations throughout the country are responsible for establishing the conditions for the association's active work.
Prominent members of the Hungarian industry are active in the organizations of the association. This has led to the accumulation of an outstanding knowledge base. As a result, the Association is open to all professional challenges and tackling the tasks arising in the electrotechnical industry.

One of the most important components of the objectives of the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association is to make the operation, traditions, and values of the electric industry accessible to all parts of society in a manner which is at the same time simple, transparent, but professionally complex, as well as to create awareness of how its proper operation can help facilitate the working of society and the economy. It is committed to help various social groups to avoid hazards and dangerous situations related to electricity, as well as to understand and apply the safe use of electricity.
Low energy investment, high energy savings
Electricity for us
Instead of shocking experiences
It plays a role in promoting electrotechnics to young people making career decisions. It supports the integration of young experts and helps them launch a successful career.
We invest energy into the future!
By offering an active liaison role, the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association offers a neutral platform for participants of the electrotechnical industry for coordinating key issues. The most important task of the Association is to provide a neutral but professionally complex approach for motivating participants so that specific issues are handled comprehensively and in a cost effective manner and so that stakeholders can find the solutions.
Acting together for the common good
Based on several decades of adult training experience and our extensive organizational structure, we undertake the organization of training courses subject to the adult training act as well as continued professional training courses and the development of curricula. The Association has become known for the publication and distribution of numerous professional course books used in adult training throughout the country (e.g. manuals for shock protection, high current equipment, and lighting protection reviewers). We have several years of experience in the development of e-learning training materials. The Association has organized joint industrial effort to create several training programs suitable for individual learning which is also suited for the transfer of practical knowledge by introducing novel learning methods.
The Association has a great deal of experience in organizing professional events and conferences. It has established a wide partnership with companies organizing the most extensive exhibitions and has a good relationship with the media. The most prominent members of the profession are happy to participate at our events. The national level organization of the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association as well as our professional database encompassing over 10,000 individuals make it possible to provide quick and effective notice to its potential audience even on a regional level, thereby ensuring that conferences or exhibitions will be of a high quality, effective, and successful. The Association is open to all initiatives that primarily serve the interests of the profession and the common good.
Our history of 115 years provides appropriate professional experience and our membership of 5,000 provides a strong background for the Association, primarily its supporting and individual members, individuals and enterprises working in the fields of electrotechnics and related fields for performing professional as well as research and development tasks, issuing professional opinions, offering professional consultation, as well as drafting papers and technical designs.
Elektrotechnika is the official journal of the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association that was founded under the presidency of Károly Zipernowsky in 1908. Its high quality articles, reports on events related to the Association, and news on technical progress provide continuous information to readers regarding professional development.
