Elektroinštitut Milan Vidmar

"An Engineer should above all be a human being. If he has not yet reached this stage, he should make an effort to arrive to it. He should therefore search in solving of his problems for beauty as well as truth, and in the transitoriness of his life work he should aspire to what is eternal..."

Elektroinštitut Milan Vidmar (EIMV) is the leading Slovenian engineering and scientific research organisation acting in the area of electric power engineering and was established in 1948. From the economic and technological perspective, it addresses the issues of generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. The experts at the institute prepare feasibility and implementation studies, expert reports, they implement technological, environmental and other analyses, inspect the quality and operation of electric power systems and facilities as required by electric power utilities, ministries and national as well as regional authorities. The institute also implements R&D projects on the EU (Horizon 2020) and regional levels that are evolved on various levels of sophistication encompassing the process from idea to its realisation.
