Welcome to IDGTE

Our mission is to serve our members and the industry by encouraging the sharing of knowledge and advancing the design, development, manufacture, application, operation and maintenance of reciprocating internal combustion engines, gas turbines and their related fields. We strive to be the place where all involved in the power and engine industries can develop their knowledge in the field of diesel engines, gas engines, gas turbines and related technologies.

You are invited to be part of IDGTE. Join a unique professional organisation dedicated to your industry and extend your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) by participating in IDGTE meetings, technical visits and networking opportunities.

Join now: Get access to online library and receive past technical papers published in the Power Engineer free of charge. Pay no registration fee.

Gas Turbine Market Trends

It has been reported very recently by one source that Global Gas Turbine Market has been estimated to be worth £14 Billion in 2017 with a projection that this will reach a £16 Billion by 2022. Gas Turbine World has also recently reported on the world market for industrial gas turbines predicting that the Electricity Utility, Oil & Gas sectors will order over 600GW of gas turbine capacity over the next 10 years. The total value of this market is estimated by GT World to be around £130 Billion with an aftermarket value of over £175 Billion.

Another source predicts that from 2017-2031 unit production of 21,200 industrial gas and steam turbines. This is shown as around 1400 industrial gas turbines being produced every year for the next 15 years. It is predicted that gas turbine market shares by region will be 31% Europe, 31% North America, 16% Asia and 22% elsewhere.

The reported reasons for the forecasted growth in demand for power worldwide, includes the growth in shale gas exploration, increasing investment in energy and power sector by governments and others, rapid urbanisation, and industrialization. Fluctuations in the global power generation Industry and economic benefit of coal power generation is still forecast to restrict its growth in some major countries.

Join the IDGTE  9th International Conference and learn more about these developments and find out how the gas turbine industry is planning to meet these needs.

In March 2016 ICE, IET and IMechE commissioned John Uff QC to lead a review of UK professional

engineering. In response the three institutions have agreed to put in place five work streams. These are:

It is intended that the programme includes topics of interest to our membership and the industry worldwide. In 2018 we plan to continue delivering high quality papers days as well as our seminars and conferences.  The theme of these events will include current and topical subjects relevant to members, plant users and today’s reciprocating engine and gas turbine industries.  

We invite you to send in your ideas and get involved in the organisation of these events.  You are invited to propose papers for consideration.

Your help is welcome and needed. To be part of the programme please contact IDGTE Bedford office with your comments now.
