"...we need our existing power plants to fill the gap for flexible back-up capacity – a role that they were not really designed for before."
The European Commission's Community Research and Development Information Service - better known as CORDIS - has posted an article on the FLEXTURBINE and TURBO-REFLEX Public Event in Prague and makes reference to the event video.

On 25th September 2018, the project consortia invited to the public conference “Flexible Thermal Power Plants as Back-bone for the Energy Transition” in Prague presented the project and discussed further steps with other stakeholders.
This video gives some impressions on the event.
TURBO-REFLEX is happy to announce this public event on 25th September in Prague. Together with its sister project FLEXTURBINE, TURBO-REFLEX will present its research results and discuss with high level representatives from policy, industry and research on how the projects can contribute to the transition process towards a future low carbon energy.
The scope of the conference covers fluid dynamics and thermodynamics involved in improving flexibility, performance and availability of ST, GT and other turbo-machines...
