Power systems worldwide are transitioning towards 100% renewable energy, output from variable renewable energy sources is increasing rapidly, and variability of renewable energy sources is increasingly causing a need for traditional thermal power generation to provide flexibility to power systems. Especially the role of gas-based generation is changing from baseload to provision of system balancing and flexibility.

Ever wonder what the differences between gas-fired combustion engines and gas turbines are? Find out in the detailed technical comparison articles below!
