Developing the Future!

The European Power Plant Suppliers Association (EPPSA) is the voice, at European level, of companies supplying power plants, components and services. EPPSA members, located throughout Europe, represent a leading sector of technology with more than 100,000 employees.

EPPSA actively promotes awareness of the importance of flexible and efficient, state-of-the-art thermal power generation and its crucial contribution to ensuring a clean, secure, and affordable energy supply.

EPPSA believes increased investment in Research, Development and Demonstration is a key factor in driving EU competitiveness as well as ensuring an affordable low emission power supply.

Virtually all thermal power plants in the EU are built by members of EPPSA or equipped with their components, and provide around 50% of Europe’s electricity. EPPSA members provide the most advanced thermal power technologies in the world.

The Tetrahedron of Grid Stability

The increasing share of intermittent renewable energy sources in the energy system poses challenges to meet the ever growing demand for electricity in Europe.

This short video shows how thermal power generation can play a crucial contribution, as a reliable, dispatchable and affordable energy source, whether based on conventional energy sources or renewables such as biomass, to ensure the grid stability and security of the electricity supply to meet today and future’s society needs for energy.
