Gas-Fired Power’s Role in the Energy Transition
Natural Gas Power Generation
in the Future
Date: October 27, 2021
Time: 11:30 AM – 12:15 PM CT
Gas-fired turbines generate nearly 40 percent of the electricity produced in the U.S. and the impact of gas-fired power is growing around the world as a way of cutting carbon emissions by half or more compared to coal. This session will feature two utility experts with unique insight into future gas-turbine technologies. One piece is the work Siemens is doing with Duke Energy on the SGT6-9000HL combustion gas turbine at the utility’s Lincoln station in North Carolina. The other is the brand new combined cycle gas turbine power plant that Seminole Electric Cooperative is building in Florida. Gas-fired power is here to stay, and this session will offer insights into that future looks and operates.
