Project description

The venerable gas turbine gets greener

Gas turbines play an important role in power generation and electric energy production: the gas turbine is the base component of natural gas fired combined-cycle power plants (that use both a gas and a steam turbine) which are now able to reach 60 % of thermal efficiency. Gas turbines are also used to power vehicles, from aircraft to tanks, and the global market is expected to reach more than USD 20 billion by 2022. Gas turbines are not going anywhere soon and, given their importance to the global economy, increasing their efficiency to reduce fuel consumption and emissions is a priority. The EU-funded INSPIRE project is developing novel technologies that utilise alternative thermodynamic cycles to make that possible, increasing pressure as the combustion process proceeds. The developed technologies, that will take advantage of the use of hydrogen as fuel for future scenarios, will benefit the aerospace and energy industries, the environment and our planet.
