Engine Technology Seminar

Future marine and land-based energy systems will be complex comprising a wide variety of energy resources like renewables, hybrid systems, centralized and local energy generation, peaking power, and storages.

In those systems, flexible combustion engine-based power plants will have an important role in generating fluctuating peak shaving and back-up power to meet unpredictable and short-noticed demand peaks and to control and stabilize the grids. A large number of new sustainable fuels are developed for engine use.

The Combustion Engine Branch Group of the Technology Industries of Finland arranges a seminar on topics concerning power generation with gas and diesel driven technologies. In the seminar, experts and researchers present the newest results and discuss the potential of engine-driven power technologies.

The seminar will be held in Vaasa, Finland, as part of the Vaasa EnergyWeek on Thursday, March 18, 2020. The seminar is free of charge and open for all interested listeners.
