Power plants featuring gas engines (reciprocating engines using various gas fuels) are in increasing and not just on a small scale. Market forces, lower costs and technological advances mean even in plants >100 MW can offer quick response because they are flexible, modular, fast-starting and, arguably, cleaner and more cost effective compared to gas turbines. With the growth of renewable generation, the need for variable responsive generation to deal with fluctuating loads has increased and many utilities and IPPs have opted for gas engine plants as an alternative to diesel reciprocating engines or more costly and complex CCGTs.  We examine the drivers for this, the best examples of deployment in Europe and future opportunities for gas engines.
