About us

Independent Insulation Group (I²G) consists of ten employees with close to two hundred years of combined power industry experience. Three of us have a PhD in high-voltage engineering or electrical engineering, while the other seven have a Master of Science or similar in electrical engineering, materials engineering, or physics.

We participate actively in international CIGRE/IEC working groups and have published a total of around 250 articles.

Our vision is that I²G will be the Nordic region's leading competence company for high voltage technology and power systems.
