Gas-fired power generation

Based on information from Wikipedia as of April 2017, these are the current gas-fired turbines currently in use in Australia.

Combined cycle plants include an open-cycle gas turbine, plus a heat-recovery steam generator that uses waste heat from the gas turbine to make steam to drive a steam turbine.

They do not, however, include gas thermal (steam turbine) or gas reciprocating plants.
