The Institution of Power Engineers (formerly IDGTE) is delighted to have successfully issued the 2020 Operational Report. On behalf of the working group, we are now pleased to invite you to submit a return for the next Operational Report.

All past contributors and new contributors are invited to send in returns for reciprocating engines, gas turbines, combined cycle power plants, solar, wind and other renewable energy and energy storage facilities for any twelve-month period during 2020-2021.

The IPowerE Operational Report provides analysis, guidance and benchmark performance indices to users of reciprocating engines, gas turbine plant and combined cycle power plants worldwide as well as all forms of power generation.  The report which was formerly known as the Working Cost Report, has existed over 97 years and relies upon the contributions of Users to ensure it is both comprehensive and statistically valid.  We hope that you will be interested in continuing this work with us and will submit a return for the next IPowerE Operational Report helping to keep this going and make this a great success.

The Annual Operational Report is a unique compilation of data of value to our members, organisations worldwide, power plant owners, operators, financial bodies, manufacturers and consulting engineers.  The Report is one of a number of technical papers presented and published by IPowerE annually.  Over recent years we have had 38 countries and territories represented in our reports representing over 600 sites and 3000 prime movers. Please help us to achieve our target by sending in your return and recommending to others.

All contributors to the report will receive a copy of the full results as soon as they have been compiled and a printed copy of the report when it is issued. Contributors will also receive an invitation to join the Ops Report discussion meeting as soon as this can be arranged.

Please visit the web site and download the guidance notes and forms. Returns may be sent in at any time.  The guidance notes and return forms together with a sample return are available to down load from the IPowerE web site:

If you have any query or would like assistance, or more time to submit, then please contact the IPowerE office in Bedford, United Kingdom and we will be delighted to help.

Yours faithfully,

On behalf of IPowerE Operational Report Working Group
