GPPS Energy Forum 2023

Turbomachinery forum 2023 banner

Energy Availability, Affordability, Security, and Sustainability with a focus on Current and New Technologies

During these challenging times, the GPPS Executive Committee decided to have GPPS Forum23 concentrate on various but interconnected subjects. We have included subjects along the entire value chain to highlight what we believe will represent the demand side of the future as well as the various supply options our society will have to explore and develop.

The above holds true for the Aviation as well as the Energy Systems side as the two are closely connected. We will therefore not have separate days for aviation and energy systems, but hold the event exploring the interactions and dependencies for various systems.

The event’s presentations & discussions will revolve around Energy Supply Availability & Security across regions; New Energy Technology and Energy Storage to address the Sustainability of the Energy Supply; the Potential of Green e-Fuel within the Aviation and Energy worlds, including the Hydrogen Economy and Value Chain; LNG & Hydrogen, and the Finance of Energy Transition

This Forum is the perfect networking opportunity, where you can meet other turbomachinery professionals on a personal level through our various social networking events. These include coffee and lunch, but also our welcome apero and our favorite, the gala dinner!

Want to take discussions further, we have a number of individual meeting rooms available.

We look forward to welcoming you to Zurich for two days of discussions, networking opportunities, and our entertainment program.


The GPPS Forum23 will be hosted by ETH Zurich, one of the top universities for education and research in continental Europe. The University is centrally located in the city of Zurich, which lies in the heart of Europe and at the center of Switzerland.
