Parker Hannifin, Cleveland, has joined ETN Global, Brussels, 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 trends of decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization. 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, the group says.
ETN Global has more than 120 members from over 20 countries, encouraging and facilitating research and development, information exchange and cooperation between gas turbine manufacturers, operating companies, engineers, academics and market leaders.
“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,” said Gerald Woodward, global marketing manager, Parker Gas Turbine Filtration.
