10th International Gas Turbine Conference – Gas turbines in a carbon-neutral society

About IGTC

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.
