Leonardo Power Quality Initiative (LPQI)

The Leonardo Power Quality Initiative offers the electrical sector a vast information sharing and knowledge base service.

Created in 2001, LPQI has grown into a partnership community of 100 authorities in the field of power quality. They range from academic and polytechnic institutions to engineering companies. LPQI aims to provide end-users and business decision makers with facts and best practices to improve power quality in the non-residential sector and to raise awareness among policy makers. LPQI European education programme reaches 100 000 professionals each year.

Now the CDAA is bringing that same knowledge base to its members in Africa. New items from LPQI will be featured here.
