On behalf of the Gas Turbine Society of Japan (GTSJ), I am very pleased to announce that the International Gas Turbine Congress 2019 Tokyo (IGTC2019 Tokyo) will be held from the 17th to the 22nd of November 2019, with the support of collaborating societies around the world. This is the 12th international congress organized by GTSJ, with the most recent congress having taken place in 2015 in Tokyo with great success.
Gas turbines, with their qualities of high efficiency, high reliability and low NOx emissions, are expected to serve as one of the best technologies for CO2 reduction and thereby provide a countermeasure against global warming. Also, with their flexible performance, gas turbines will be able to meet the needs of the coming renewable energy society for quicker and more sophisticated supply-demand control of electrical power.
IGTC2019 is designed to discuss and share the latest information about fundamental technologies, product developments and application systems of gas turbines in various energy systems in our global community.
It is my sincere hope that the IGTC2019 will lead to stronger ties between gas turbine societies in Asia and their counterparts in the US and Europe, and we look forward to your participation.
