Our Mission

The voice of the GT Industry

The GTA serves as the unified voice for the gas turbine industry. Today Gas Turbines produce more than a quarter of our nation's electricity. They are a cornerstone energy conversion technology, providing electricity and heat for industries and communities.

Gas turbines will play an increasingly important role in the achievement of national objectives related to energy and the environment. Recent technical advances make gas turbines the logical choice for new power generation and for replacing the aging fleet of thermal facilities operating on oil or coal:

  • Flexible; permits "Shadowing" renewables to keep the power grid stable
  • Use low-carbon, plentiful, cheap natural gas to reduce toxic and GHG emissions
  • Lower capital costs;
  • Easier permitting;
  • Quicker to construct;
  • Smaller footprint
  • Portable (in smaller sizes) for emergency power and temporary needs

Policy makers and other stakeholders need to know how gas turbines can meet the evolving power generation needs of our nation. Representing all major power gas turbine equipment manufacturers, the mission of the Gas Turbine Association is to provide the information needed to fully realize this potential.

History of the GTA


9th International Gas Turbine Conference

Brussels, Belgium
October 2018  

The International Gas Turbine Conference is a well-established and renowned biennial conference. Its objective is to raise awareness of gas turbine (GT) technology development needs – from oil & gas, power generation and industrial operators’ perspectives – and to explore and exchange ideas with GT experts from the whole value chain, attending from all continents.


Hamburg, Germany
September 4, 2018 -  September 7, 2018

Every two years SMM (shipbuilding, machinery and marine technology) gathers the maritime industry to learn about developments, new technologies and prospects in the industry. The exhibition usually registers about 2200 international exhibitors and roughly 50 000 visitors.

Turbo Expo

Phoenix AZ
June 17-21, 2019  

Plan now to join over 3,000 turbomachinery colleagues from around the world at ASME TURBO EXPO, ASME's premier turbomachinery technical conference and exposition, set for June 17 - 21, 2019 in Phoenix, AZ USA.

Focus Areas

Government Affairs

When GTA speaks, government officials can be confident they are hearing the consensus voice of the gas turbine industry. GTA's Government Affairs committee focuses on increasing government recognition and support of the gas turbine industry. The Committee educates policy makers on applications and advantages of gas turbines, and advocates positions of interest on legislative and regulatory proposals. read more...


The mission of the Environmental Affairs Committee is to develop and implement a strategy for ensuring reasonable and responsible environmental practices for gas turbines. Through the committee the gas turbine community can develop environmental policy recommendations for communication to regulators and legislators. read more...

Technical Affairs

The GTA Technical Affairs Committee develops recommendations for government-supported technology R&D programs. The Committee also provides an industry forum to develop industry technical guidelines needed to increase the understanding and utilization of gas turbine engines. read more...
