An Energy Solution that's good for the Environment, Rate Payers & Plant Owners.


Turbine inlet cooling (TIC) boosts capacity and efficiency of combustion turbine (CT) systems during hot weather. TIC is a resilient, sustainable, fast-responding and carbon-reducing option. It is a pathway to decarbonization of the electric grid. It is also compatible with the CT systems that operate in response to a short notice because of the intermittent output of renewable electric power sources.

The Turbine Inlet Cooling Association (TICA) promotes the development and exchange of knowledge related to gas turbine inlet cooling (TIC) for enhancing power generation worldwide. TICA is a non-profit organization.

If you are looking to increase your knowledge about TIC, you don’t have to look any further. TICA is your one-stop source for valuable information and tools for TIC. Following are some of the highlights of the information available on this website:
