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
– an energy conscious approach in the home
The objective of our awareness shaping program is to draw the attention of everyday consumers to the importance of conscious energy use, which, in addition to having a positive social impact, also contributes to decreased energy costs. By offering training activities and events, it wishes to provide guidelines, providing credible information related to energy efficiency, using the contents of its journal titled "Elektrotechnika" (Electrotechnics) and by implementing awareness campaigns.

Electricity for us
– comprehensible electricity supply
The aim of our information program is to make it possible for society to learn of the complex system of electricity supply, as well as the operation, traditions and values of the electric industry. Furthermore, it is in our interest for household consumers to also become familiar with relationships of cause and effect impacting them. Our informational publications created for large groups of our society, the articles of the magazine "Elektrotechnika", as well as our training activities related to fundamental electric skills serves this objective.

Instead of shocking experiences
– safe electric installation
The aim of the program is to create household user awareness of the importance of safe electric installation primarily from the point of view of the protection of life and assets. Its purpose is to support products and services which serve the purpose of high quality electric installation. Our association participates in organizing the Infoshow program series and the training of electricians. It creates professional opinions and organizes awareness raising campaigns for home users.


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!
– mentor program for young people
The aim of our professional mentoring program is to locate gifted young people so that they can profit from the work done in the field of succession planning while receiving support from the stakeholders of the electricity industry. In order to achieve our objectives, we announce our competitions titled "Diploma Work and Thesis" as well as "My Hobby, Electrotechnics" every year. The András Mechwart Youth Meeting makes is possible for young professionals to deepen their personal and professional relationships.

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.

Thinking together
– synchronized with the industry
Our aim is to build on the traditionally solid relationship between stakeholders of the electrotechnical industry and the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association to launch new activities along existing synergies. This aim is facilitated by the organization of technical days, meetings for professionals, as well as the Conference, which is the largest event of the domestic electric industry.

Developing together
– integrating knowledge and resources
The Association establishes the common platform required by stakeholders of the electrotechnical industry for professional cooperation and coordinates the development of harmonized professional recommendations, solutions, and training materials. In order to achieve this goal, it leverages its professional organizations to coordinate professional projects based on common interests, to create training materials and recommendations, and to manage events.

Acting together for the common good
– representing professional and scientific interests
The aim of the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association's program is to contribute to the supply and use of electricity that is reliable and safe on the long term, acting in joint cooperation with the stakeholders of the electrotechnical industry for the common good. Our aim is to perfect the regulatory environment – standards and legislation – by undertaking professional projects and creating recommendations.


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.
