List of Members

The decarbonisation of gas-fired power generation will be required in the coming years to meet the significant CO2 reduction targets of those countries where gas is a major contributor to the energy mix, while retaining the operational flexibility needed to balance the increased levels of generation from intermittent renewables. This extends from new build plants with integrated CO2 capture technologies, enhancements to improve efficiency/increase exhaust CO2 levels (exhaust gas recycle), firing of low CO2/high H2 fuels, the retrofit with CO2 capture of existing installed plants and advanced cycles, including oxy-firing.
