The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is conducting a program to develop ultra high-efficiency, cost-effective, environmentally benign gas turbine systems for industrial and utility applications. The Advanced Turbine Systems (ATS) Program, jointly managed by the DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy (DOE/FE) and Office of Conservation and Renewable Energy (DOE/CE), will lead to the commercial offering by industry of systems meeting full program goals by the years 2000–2002. It is expected that some advanced technology will already have been commercialized in intermediate systems before that time. Teams, led by U.S. turbine manufacturers, will conduct most of the development work in the ATS Program. However, a substantial technology base element of the program will see universities and others conduct significant research and development (R&D) on generic technology issues relevant to the program.

The program is primarily aimed at developing natural gas-fired turbine systems. Although the conversion of ATS to firing with coal or biomass fuels will be addressed in the analysis of ATS, tests will not be conducted in the program to verify conversion to alternate fuel firing. The program will, however, include work to transfer advanced technology to the coal- and biomass-fueled systems being developed in other DOE programs.
