The European Turbine Network believes recent developments in the EU’s power generation scene augur well for gas-fired power, but primarily in terms of re-starting mothballed facilities.
European Turbine Network, COGEN Europe, AEBIOM and the Renewable Heating & Cooling Platform are to organise a policy session entitled “Micro-Gas Turbines put a new spin on green energy production” during the forthcoming EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW).
A change in market conditions in Europe has prompted RWE to plan the re-start of a previously mothballed gas-fired power plant in the Netherlands.
It gives me great pleasure to present the second edition of Power Engineering International's special Gas & Steam Turbine Directory issue, which as the name suggests focuses on the workhorses of the conventional power industry, namely gas and steam turbines.
The head of Europe's main gas turbine association says politicians are failing to react quickly enough to the realities of the bloc’s power sector, leading to coal power continuing to hold sway in certain countries.
