GTEN is focused on the implementation of a technical training program for government and industry, focused on a transition to cleaner energy systems with increased electrification, hydrogen-based systems, renewables, and a more efficient new pipeline, district energy, and cogeneration systems.

For over 45 years the Gas Turbines for Energy Network (GTEN, former IAGT) Committee has been providing a forum for communication of new energy technology developments related to the industrial application of gas turbines for pipeline compressors, combined cycle power, and various cogeneration and district energy systems. The GTEN Committee provides continued support for these types of cleaner distributed energy systems across Canada, with expanding linkages to renewables, hydrogen, and bio-energy.

This transition will require a significant effort among all stakeholders, requiring more education and skillset training of the workforce in design, construction, operation, and maintenance of a variety of energy systems, which include rotating equipment and thermal energy in industrial processes.

GTEN can contribute with a series of online/onsite training sessions for students, new government and industry employees, and Indigenous organizations to address knowledge gaps around climate change and innovative energy solutions. The courses would provide a basic understanding of balanced environmental and technical design issues for renewable and natural gas energy systems used in power production, pipeline compression, combined cycle, cogeneration, and district heating service. Webinars are carried out by experienced GTEN members or partners, along with annual onsite training events in eastern or western regions of Canada.
