UNITED KINGDOM: Leading gas turbine knowledge sharing and advocacy group welcomes Parker Hannifin and its commitment to advance the clean energy transition.

Parker Hannifin is delighted to announce membership of the prestigious ETN Global organisation, a non-profit body dedicated to supporting the clean energy transition through technology development, networking, and knowledge sharing.

Energy systems are undergoing fundamental transformation, driven by the key trends of decarbonisation, decentralisation, and digitalisation. A key objective for ETN Global is to accelerate this change through development, demonstration, and deployment of safe, secure, affordable, and dispatchable carbon-neutral energy solutions by 2030. This is a role Parker Hannifin is excited to support and engage with.

With more than 120 members from over 20 countries, ETN Global brings together the entire turbo-machinery value chain. The organisation encourages and facilitates research and development, information exchange and cooperation between gas turbine manufacturers, operating companies, engineers, academics, and market leaders.

ETN Working Groups include those dedicated to air filtration, exhaust systems, corrosion, and emerging areas of interest, including decentralised energy systems, additive manufacturing, hydrogen, and supercritical CO2.

There is also a gas turbine user community that aims to deliver a single and independent voice that can articulate user issues and trigger an appropriate response from OEMs, ISPs, and the R&D community. The independent user groups focus on frequently used gas turbines within both the power generation and oil and gas sectors. The ETN also produces policy briefings, tailor-made educational courses for the gas turbine user community, and position papers on key issues.

Announcing the company’s ETN membership, Gerald Woodward, Parker Gas Turbine Filtration: Global Marketing Manager said: “With a focus on the development of new, clean combustion technology, ETN Global is supporting the development of low-carbon energy production from flexible and reliable gas turbines. Despite the boom in renewable energy, conventional gas-fired power generation will continue to play a strategic role in the future energy system. That’s why knowledge sharing is so important for tomorrow’s clean energy world. We’re thrilled to join the ETN association and look forward to supporting ETN and its members in furthering the role of gas turbines through the clean energy transition”.

“Our vision for gas turbines to deliver affordable and dependable carbon-neutral energy solutions that can be implemented globally by 2050 relies on our members actively contributing to technology development. As a leading player in the gas turbine industry, Parker Hannifin has a major role in technology deployment, but also the vital research and development capabilities that can advance the global energy business. We look forward to sharing their varied and valuable contributions both within our working group research areas and more broadly across our organisation and between our members. I am very pleased to be able to welcome them aboard as members of ETN Global,” said Christer Björkqvist, Managing Director, ETN Global a.i.s.b.l.
