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.
