The GPPS Society

Welcome To The Global Power & Propulsion Society

The Global Power and Propulsion Society (GPPS) is a volunteer-led global community of professionals (regardless of affiliations, nationalities, or stages of career development) who are interested in energy, particularly power generation and aeronautical propulsion. The society aims to provide a neutral forum for professionals to meet, exchange, and publish their most recent results and ideas on all aspects of power and propulsion. Given the recent seismic shifts associated with globalization and energy transition, we feel it is more important than ever for the power and propulsion professionals to meet and interact freely.

As the world increasingly moves toward carbon neutrality, renewable power, and electrification of propulsion, rotating machines have a critical role to play in such environments. These machines include but are not limited to gas turbines, steam turbines, and wind turbines for energy production; and rotating machines for the oil and gas communities as well as for novel cycle applications.

So, if you are interested in power and propulsion, we encourage you to join us.
