IDGTE programme

Tuesday 26 September 2017

A one-day seminar is being held at IGEM House in Kegworth.

Current evidence strongly suggests a resurgence of interest in gas-fuelled plant in the UK – both based on gas engines and gas turbines. As the coal stations have been reducing output since their recent peak in 2012, the major part of the shortfall has been provided by gas generation – alongside

the increase in renewables, especially wind and biomass.

This seminar is aimed at gas engine based plant, its

development, operational experience and market roles.

The provisional list of companies giving presentations includes National Grid, GE Jenbacher, Green Frog Power, Wärtsilä, Centrica, Chevron Lubricants, Infinis,

UK Power Networks and Flexitricity.
