With the transition to more use of renewable forms of energy in Europe, the role of conventional power plants is increasingly becoming an on-demand backup source of power generation. At the same time, power consumption is continuing to grow, and with it, its dependency on variable sources.
The TURBO-REFLEX project tackles this challenge by developing and optimising technologies applicable to a selected set of turbomachinery engine components, which can be used to retrofit existing power plants as well as new machines in order to enable more flexible operation, providing the flexible back-up capacity needed for introducing a larger share of renewables in the energy system. TURBO-REFLEX will assess the impact of such technologies at plant level and prepare the transfer of component technology gains into reduction of both (unplanned and planned) outages and maintenance and operation costs.
TURBO-REFLEX in cooperation with Cranfield University and the Institution of Power Engineers (IPowerE) invites you to this public event and symposium.
This event showcases the work of TURBO-REFLEX and related state-of-the-art research in the area of operational flexibility. It is a
great opportunity to discuss the future role of thermal power plants and to look at related challenges
opportunities covering the user operation, energy market, environment/legislation and scientific/technological implications.
The event includes keynote speakers from academia, industry and consultancy.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn more about the project and the topics it addresses, and to meet and exchange with stakeholders from the energy community.Participation is free.
