The most important direction of energy development for in coming years in most of the countries of the world this is the one considered to be based on a significant increase in natural gas consumption. Particularly in such countries as Poland, where 90% of electricity and 86% of heat is produced from the combustion of coal, increasing the use of natural gas is the most important economic activity for the next decades. From high-power engineering based on combined cycle gas turbine unit CCGT to the distributed cogeneration systems based on gas engines is the most important direction of development of energy, not only in Europe or Poland but other countries as well.
Additionally, power based on natural gas can efficiently be supported by renewable energy above all mostly: solar, wind and geothermal. Renewable energy sources are difficult to be used and expensive to operate but, in co-operation with natural gas technology, are very, very promising.
Lectures, exercises, and laboratories will be carried out by the staff associated with the PUT – Laboratory of Gas Technology (LTG) and also internships will be given in modern industry natural gas companies. A significant part of the lectures will be conducted by employees of a major international research institution such as the Technical University of Munich, Institute of Geology and Geophysics in Potsdam- Germany, Spain, the Royal Institute of Technology at Stockholm. Lectures will also be conducted by outstanding employees with the best Polish academic centers.
Gas Technology Laboratory at Poznan University of Technology has well-equipped research facilities. In the LTG lab, there are carried out gas technology processes for over 30 years. Faculty of the laboratory have years of experience in scientific and research centers in a very significant international-centers (the University of California, Gas Wärme Institute in Germany, the Royal Institut of Technology in Stockholm, National Laboratory in Switzerland). In the lab will be conducted laboratories, that would supplement lectures. Due to the very wide international cooperation with Polish and international natural gas companies, the LTG is qualified for the good organization of studies in Gas Technologies and Renewable Energy.
