8th International Gas Turbine Conference

The next International Gas Turbine Conference (IGTC) will take place in Brussels from 12 to 13 October and will be organised by the European Turbine Network (ETN), member of the EEF. Future gas turbine technology developments from a user’s and a political point of view will be discussed in this two-day conference.

The organisation of this biennial event enables awareness raising on gas turbine (GT) technology development needs from both oil & gas and power generation operators' perspectives. It is also an excellent environment for the exploration and exchange of ideas with policy makers and GT experts from the whole value chain attending from Europe, North America, Middle East, and Asia. This conference will highlight the energy market outlook in Europe and globally and will present and discuss on-going R&D activities on flexible, efficient and environmentally sound gas turbines.

The 8th International Gas Turbine Conference (IGTC-16) will focus on:

  • The role played by gas turbines in the future international energy policy mix, where intermittent sources of renewable energy may significantly increase, nuclear capacity may drastically decrease, while the emerging economies’ demand for cheap and secure energy will rapidly rise to assist their economic growth in coming decades;
  • Current and future technology trends and the different stakeholders’ views on required technology developments to ensure flexible, efficient, reliable and environmentally sound gasturbine operation.
