Keynote

Plan now to join 3,000+ turbine colleagues from around the world listen to the Keynote at ASME TURBO EXPO, set for June 17 - 21, 2019 in Phoenix, AZ USA

Keynote Theme — Turbomachines for Clean Power and Propulsion Systems

Advances in technology, regulatory changes and market forces require that future power and propulsion systems undergo a major transformation. Emphasis on clean energy has led to increased use of renewables for power generation. Flexibility in operation is critical for energy utilities that utilize wind turbines or solar panels along with traditional gas turbines for efficient peak and level-load power management. This has driven innovative ideas for power plant integration, new cycles and energy storage concepts that are in many ways reliant on turbomachinery. For aviation, marine and other applications, there is a push to reduce the carbon foot-print by moving to alternative or bio-fuels. More recently, the aviation industry is considering turbo-electric and hybrid-electric propulsion concepts in future aircraft for reduced emissions. These new propulsion systems require changes to the traditional turbomachinery architecture for seamless integration with the electrical components. The conference will bring together experts from power and propulsion areas to highlight the emerging trends and challenges associated with bringing clean energy technologies to fruition and new applications that will shape the turbomachines of the future.
