Power Generation

Generating Power Cleanly and Efficiently

The global emphasis on reducing carbon emissions is having profound effects on the power sector. Coupled with the shale revolution, natural gas use for power generation has seen a remarkable expansion, along with wind and solar. Growing power demands will require the expanded use of fossil and renewable resources.

GTI is developing advanced power cycles, carbon capture solutions, and polygeneration applications to maintain a diverse mix of options for large-scale power generation around the world.

GTI also continues its work on distributed, on-site generation in combined heat and power applications. ​Researchers focus on technologies that help industrial and commercial facilities meet stringent emissions standards. We are working especially closely with the U.S. Department of Energy, California Energy Commission and local utilities on the development and demonstration of new solutions for the industrial and onsite power sectors.
