Gas turbines as key technology for the change in energy policy
Gas turbines are much more stable in generating energy than renewable energies while simultaneously being cleaner than steam turbines. Thus, they represent the ideal option for the stabilisation of electricity grids in times of energy transition. The "Gas turbines - Strategies in Times of Renewable Energy" conference looks at the specific strategic and technical challenges arising from this new role. Visit the conference to obtain learn about subjects such as:
- The current and future role of gas turbines for the energy market
- The optimisation of gas turbines in view of technical flexibility
- The perspective of network providers
- Innovations in the turbine technology
- International best practices
- The transfer of insights from the aviation industry
In the course of a panel discussion, a comparison is also made between gas engine power plants and Combined Cycle power plants.
Supporting program of the conference
The Workshop "Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for Power Plants" one day prior to the conference provides you with information on the implementation of digital solutions in power plants. By simultaneously booking both conference and workshop, you will receive a reduced combination price. In the context of a joint evening event, you also have the opportunity of extensive networking.
