10th International Gas Turbine Conference – Gas turbines in a carbon-neutral society
The International Gas Turbine Conference (IGTC) is a well-established and renowned biennial conference, organised by ETN, representing the whole gas turbine community. The objective is to raise the awareness of gas turbine (GT) and turbomachinery technology development needs – from operators’ perspectives – and to explore and exchange ideas with GT experts from the whole value chain attending from all continents. The IGTC also provides the opportunity to meet and discuss with policymakers the role of gas turbines in future energy scenarios. The conference highlights the energy market outlook in Europe and in key markets globally, as well as presents and disseminates current R&D activities and latest achievements for flexible, efficient, reliable and environmentally sound gas turbine technology. More information about the previous conferences is available here.
Virtual conference: 11-15 October 2021
The conference included 5 keynote sessions, 9 technical sessions (with 27 technical papers), a virtual exhibition and a networking lounge.
Presentations and technical papers
Presentations and technical papers will be available only for the IGTC attendees after the conference. All participants will receive a link by email on 22 October 2021 at the latest.
Recordings (replays) of the sessions will be available only for the conference attendees. Please use your personal link to access the conference platform. Replays are available until 15 November 2021. Any downloads will not be available.
