Funding Available For Turbine Research

By Jack Burke12 June 2017

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the availability of approximately US$28 million for cost-shared research and development. The new funding opportunities are designed to advance technologies related to advanced combustion systems, advanced turbines and gasification as part of the Office of Fossil Energy’s (FE) Advanced Energy Systems program.

Part of the funding (US$5.15 million) is for the University Turbine Systems Research (UTSR) Program.
The UTSR program supports a portfolio of gas turbine–focused university projects that address a wide variety of technical topics including combustion, aerodynamics/heat transfer, and advanced materials. The program’s cutting-edge research is relevant to the gas turbine industry and supports advanced technologies that can increase energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and provide additional performance benefits. FE seeks proposals from universities that address advancing the performance and efficiency of combustion turbines in six technical topic areas: (1) Low-NOx (nitrogen oxide) Combustion Technology Development for “Air-Breathing” Advanced Turbines, (2) Advanced Cooling Technology Development for “Air-Breathing” Advanced Turbines, (3) Advanced Materials Technology Development for “Air-Breathing” Advanced Turbines, (4) Big Data Analytics, (5) Advanced Instrumentation, and (6) Pressure Gain Combustion.
