Example of a large turbine used for power generation.

​GTI researchers are working to deploy technologies designed to advance the implementation of natural gas-fired power generation, with a strong focus on helping 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.

 

Key Initiatives
  • Developing compact equipment to provide high efficiency ultra-clean power and steam
  • Exploring opportunities to expand the use of smaller-scale power systems fueled by natural gas
  • Meeting stringent emissions standards for reciprocating engines used in power generation
  • Integrating renewable resources into a hybrid distributed generation system
  • Producing heat and power via biomass gasification
  • Cleaning and conditioning biogas for use in clean power applications
  • Developing processes for pre- and post-combustion carbon capture at power plants
  • Advancing cooling tower technology to improve power plant efficiency and reduce water use
