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

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...


Develop and implement a strategy for ensuring reasonable and responsible environmental practices for gas turbines Develop environmental policy recommendations for communication to regulators and legislators Conducts productive dialogue regarding the development of a regulatory climate that encourages the use of clean efficient gas turbine applications in new and retrofit installations 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...
