Focusing on challenges

Power industries are currently facing considerable challenges. Worldwide demand for electricity is growing at a time when energy-generating equipment is approaching the end of its service life. In addition, concerns over security of supply and the potential effects of climate change are driving forward new technologies, leading to an increasing diversification of the generating mix.

As well as the introduction of higher-efficiency coal, combined cycle gas turbine plants, and improvements to plant integrity and power transportation, there is a global trend for low-carbon technologies ranging from nuclear to renewables such as wave, wind and biomass, together with the newly emerging carbon abatement technologies (CAT) including carbon capture and storage (CCS).

TWI focuses its technologies and support on helping Members to overcome the challenges of today and the anticipated challenges of tomorrow, covering:
