Advanced Turbines

 

The Advanced Turbines program is focused on the development of advanced turbine technologies that will accelerate turbine performance, efficiency, and cost effectiveness beyond current state-of-the-art and provide tangible benefits to the public in the form of lower cost of electricity (COE), reduced emissions of criteria pollutants, and carbon capture options. The efficiency of combustion turbines has steadily increased as advanced technologies have provided manufacturers with the ability to produce highly advanced turbines that operate at very high temperatures. Further increases in efficiency are possible through the continued development of advanced components, combustion technologies, material systems, thermal management, and novel turbine-based cycles.
