Chairmanship of the European Lightning Protection Standard Committee

CenelecThe permanent Secretariat of the European Standardization Committee (CENELEC) “Lightning protection” TC81X belongs to Italy. He attributed to our lightning expert Alain Rousseau the function of chairman of the 81X committee. It is an honor and a privilege to have been chosen by this Committee and this Secretariat whose level of requirement is known in particular to develop a lightning protection more and more rigorous. Alain Rousseau, succeeds to Christian Bouquegneau of the University of Mons, with whom SEFTIM has already done conferences on lightning and who has just retired. This post is also the right time to pay tribute to the work of Christian Bouquegneau not only in the field of standardization (IEC and CENELEC) but also for his scientific work and his work in the field of lightning in art or the history of Lightning.
