Speeding up the energy transition: the path towards zero-emission propulsion

The energy transition is a crucial weapon in the fight against climate change – societies biggest challenge. Only if our energy system is carbon neutral by 2050 we will be able to mitigate the effects of climate change. But at the current pace, we will not get there in thirty years’ time. That is why “speeding up the energy transition” is the theme for our 180th anniversary year – a year in which we celebrate our active role in the energy transition.

With around a thousand scientists, TU Delft is one of Europe’s largest research institutes in the field of energy. But of course, we do not do this alone. We work together with partners in the field labs on the TU Delft Campus, with companies, policymakers, business developers, and social scientists from all over Europe. And, of course, we also accelerate the energy transition with you!

As the transport sector accounts for a quarter of energy consumption globally, decarbonization of the sector would play a critical role in climate change mitigation and the energy transition. Like all other sectors, the transport sector too must create novel and innovative ways to become climate neutral. Therefore, we invite you to block Tuesday, May 24 in your calendar. On that date, we are organizing our Sustainable Transport Event, where we will focus on the challenges and ambitions for producing sustainable fuels and developing the required technology to achieve climate-neutral shipping and aviation.


DGTA's membership is open to gas turbine manufacturers; manufacturers of components and systems, maintenance, overhaul and repair companies, consultancies, users and research institutes. DGTA's members are active in nearly every possible application of gas turbine technology, including aviation, industrial, marine and cogeneration.

Technology & Innovation

DGTA hosts two user groups: the Working Group of Industrial Turbine Users in te Netherlands and Belgium (WIGG) and the European users of the GE Frame 6B gas turbine. The WIGG meets every 6 months to get informed on hot subjects, share knowledge and evaluate on performance. The GE Frame 6B users meet once every two years somewhere in Europe for a three-day conference.
