The NETL Hydrogen Turbine Program manages a research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) portfolio of projects designed to remove environmental concerns about the future use of fossil fuels through development of revolutionary, near-zero-emission advanced turbine technologies.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds gas turbine technology research and development to improve the efficiency, emissions, and cost performance of turbines with carbon capture and storage (CCS). This research will also benefit machines in utility applications.
Turbine Research Projects
University Turbine Systems Research Program
Focused on combustion, aerodynamics/heat transfer, and materials, the University Turbine Systems Research (UTSR) Program seeks to develop advanced turbines and turbine-based systems that operate cleanly and efficiently when fueled with coal-derived synthesis gas and hydrogen fuels.
Small Business Innovation Research
Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) is a U.S. government program in which federal agencies with large research and development budgets, such as the Department of Energy, set aside a small portion of their funding for competitions among small businesses.
