Established in 1913 as the Diesel Engine Users Association, our objectives are to serve members by advancing the design, development, manufacture, application, operation and maintenance of reciprocating internal combustion engines, gas turbines and their related fields.
We aim to be the leading independent professional body for power engineers, we play a key role in training, developing and representing our industry.more
The Institution continues with its unique “user” focus for the operation of these prime movers and has produced an annual Operational Report featuring factual operational data since 1923. Comparison is made to alternative forms of energy conversion technologies thus representing an independent overview of prime mover options for transport, marine and industrial plant.
The Institution is responsible for the presentation of technical papers, conferences, open forum discussions and technical visits. It promotes understanding and product development which has been invaluable in progressing through a number of learning curves – most of which relate to a use of a variety of fossil and non fossil fuel types, whilst constantly improving fuel consumption and reducing exhaust emissions.
We are dedicated to developing the skills of our members in their specialist areas. Whether it's through sharing knowledge, bringing the right people together or providing practical advice, the IDGTE can help you get the most from your industry.less
