Gas Technology Institute Key Developments

U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory Selects Gas Technology Institute, Southwest Research Institute and GE Global Research to Lead $80 Million Power PlantProject

Gas Technology Institute (GTI), together with partners Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and GE Global Research, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) for an $80 million award to design, build, and operate a 10 MWe (megawatts electrical) sCO2 pilot power plant. The goal of this project is to advance the technology development of supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) Brayton power cycles. In Brayton power cycles, high-power-density turbomachinery utilizes supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) as the working fluid. Historically, Brayton power cycles have only been used in spacecraft applications where compact, lightweight, high-energy-density power conversion is required, but these advantages are now being applied to terrestrial power generation for the step-change increase in efficiency and corresponding reduction in emissions they offer. GTI will design, construct, commission, and operate a versatile 10 MWe sCO2 pilot-plant test facility located at SwRI's San Antonio, Texas campus. The project will operate at a turbine inlet temperature of at least 700degreeC aimed at advancing the high-temperature sCO2 power cycle performance from proof-of-concept to a validated prototype operational system. The project will address the research and development needs of the component vendors and support the risk reduction and commercialization needs of the systems integrators and end users. Developing and maturing the technology at pilot scale will spur the development of necessary equipment, understanding, and characterization needed for larger-scale sCO2 power conversion systems.

Nick Stavropoulos, president, Gas, of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has been elected to the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) board of directors, effective October 4, 2016. Stavropoulos has more than 35 years of experience in the U.S. and international gas industry and joined PG&E in 2011 as executive vice president of Gas Operations. He was named president of PG&E Gas in 2015. Nick and his team are responsible for the end-to-end delivery of safe, reliable, affordable and clean gas service to 16 million people across PG&E's 70,000 square-mile-service area in Northern and Central California. As president, Nick also oversees PG&E's gas; enterprise IT; physical & cyber security; safety, health & environmental; supply chain; and transportation/fleet/real estate organizations.

Westport Innovations Inc. and Westport Win Contract to Advance Natural Gas Combustion Technology

Westport Innovations Inc. announced that, together with the Gas Technology Institute, it has been awarded $900,000 towards a program to advance natural gas combustion technology. The work will feature Westport's enhanced spark ignited natural gas engine technology and demonstrate ‘High Frequency Corona Discharge Ignition’ on an original equipment manufacturer partner's engine. The engine has a displacement of between 1 and 1.5 liters per cylinder and is targeted at medium duty commercial vehicle applications. Of the total program funding, $750,000 is coming from the California Energy Commission (CEC) and $150,000 is being provided by the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas). Westport will contribute approximately $250,000 in additional funds for a total of $1.15 million. In addition to providing natural gas to its customers, SoCalGas is actively pursuing the newest and cleanest technologies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) and oxide of nitrogen (NOx) emissions. Supporting projects like this helps secure a cleaner environment for California's future.
