ETN webinar series: “PUMP-HEAT. Innovative concept to increase flexibility of combined cycle power plants and gas turbines”

ETIP SNET supports the ETN webinar series with the aim to shed light on the actions taken by the EU and the industry to meet challenges in flexible power generation and pave the way for a carbon-neutral energy system that would ensure at the same time secure and affordable energy supply.

The series hosts one episode per month, each featuring a different research and innovation project on flexible power generation funded by the Horizon 2020 programme.

The forth episode is entitled “PUMP-HEAT. Innovative concept to increase flexibility of combined cycle power plants and gas turbines” and will be held  on 12th January 2021, 12 pm – 1 pm (CET) .

Programme

The fourth episode of ETN’s webinar series on Flexible Power Generation will focus on the Horizon2020 project PUMP-HEAT (grant agreement n. 764706) .

The objective of the PUMP-HEAT is to increase the flexibility of the Combined Cycle (CC) power plants and the operation of gas turbines. The innovative concept is based on the coupling of CC power plants with a fast-cycling highly efficient Heat Pump (HP) equipped with Thermal Energy Storage (TES).

Speakers:

Performance Untapped Modulation for Power and Heat via Energy Accumulation Technologies

Alberto Traverso, Chair of Energy Systems, University of Genoa

Development of thermal storage materials for CCGT

Justin Ning-Wei Chiu, Assist. Professor in Renewable Energy, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Challenges for the integration of heat pumps in CCGT power plant cycles

Stefano Piola, Performance and Operations Team Leader, Ansaldo Energia

Dynamics and controls for flexibility

Adrien Reveillere, Product Manager, Siemens Digital

Moderator:

Ugo Simeoni, Research and Innovation Manager, ETN Global
