Czech national media braodly reported on the FLEXTURBINE Public Event and the TURBOMACHINES Conference on 25/26 September in Prague.



FLEXTURBINE invites to a public event on 25th September in Prague for discussing how advanced turbine technologies can contribute to the transition process towards a future low carbon energy sector.



With the growing share of renewable power in the energy mix, the role of thermal power plants is shifting from providing base-load power to generating fluctuating back-up power. This back-up power is necessary in order to control and stabilise the electricity system. The EU-funded research project FLEXTURBINE is devoted to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions for existing and future power plants to fulfil this role. 

Discover here the article about FLEXTURBINE published in the latest “Energie & Management” issue. Christian Aalburg (GE Global Research) and Ralf Wezel (EU Turbines, and the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association VDMA) present the ongoing research in FLEXTURBINE and how the results will advance state-of-the-art fossil fuel power plant engine technology to allow flexible high load changes as necessitated by sustainable and successful renewable energy in the European power grid.
