Master thesis: Fuel transition for gas turbines in a changing European energy landscape

A Snapshot of Your Day

Gas turbine can operate on many different fuels, but where in Europe will fossil-free fuels be available for power generation the coming decade? Help us to better understand the sustainable energy transition by investigating the availability of gas turbine fuels in Europe.

The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is happening in this very moment, and it needs to accelerate if we shall have a chance to limit global warming. At the same time, Europe is facing great challenges when availability of natural gas is scarce due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Our customers who own and operates gas turbines to produce heat and power are highly impacted by the changes in the energy landscape, short-term and longer term. We anticipate that the fuels the gas turbines will operate on will change from natural gas to fossil free alternatives step by step the coming years and the goal it to reach a Net Zero energy system.

You will get to meet experts in our global team, talk to our customers and learn lots about the energy landscape in Europe.

How You’ll Make an Impact 

You are asked to perform a market analysis for gas turbines in Europe the coming 5-10 years. How is the availability of fuels for power generation? What kind of fuels will be available in different regions? In which scenarios are operation of gas turbine running on green fuels competitive? In your analysis, you are expected to take into consideration aspects such as:

  • Availability and price of gases (fossil and renewable) in different regions in Europe
  • Country specific regulations that will affect the use of gas for power generation
  • Regulations and policies impacting the power sector
  • CO2 tax level

The results from your analysis will have a real impact. It will help us to better understand the pace of the energy transition in Europe and how we best can help our gas turbine customers to remain competitive throughout this transition.

What You Bring 

  • MSc student with good knowledge and interest in energy systems
  • You are passionate about decarbonization
  • You are eager to learn and find solutions
  • You are able to think outside the box and attack problems from different views.
