European Turbine Network - ETN

ETN is a non-profit membership association, bringing together the entire value chain of the stationary gas turbine technology (power generation and mechanical drive) community globally. ETN has currently 110 members.

ETN addresses the main challenges and concerns of gas turbine (GT) users in Committees and individual projects, composed of experts across the entire value chain: power generation and oil & gas companies, OEMs, R&D institutes, suppliers and service providers, technology consultancies and industry associations. ETN believes a common strategy and research effort between all stakeholders, along with supportive energy and research policies, will enable growth and increased competitiveness of the gas turbine sector globally.

Gas Turbines: Important Conversion Technology For The Future

To convert different fuel sources to electricity, gas turbines claim an indispensable role. Forecasts of world power demand predict a substantial increase over the next 25 years.

It is also widely accepted that fossil fuels will still be the dominant fuel for power generation in 2030, in Europe and globally. In addition, power generation from renewables such as biomass, biogas and syngas is gaining importance in energy consumption.



The GT User community within ETN decided to implement an aggregated strategy to address gas turbine users’ issues and trigger a dedicated response from OEMs, ISPs and the R&D community. The idea is to set-up various independent user groups on selected frequently used gas turbine engines within the user community for both power generation and oil and gas sector.

The strategy is to have a single and independent voice communicating user issues and a link to the whole gas turbine value chain which will provide a wide visibility and a strong push for exploring and developing solutions.
