The privatisation of the electricity supply industry in the UK and the impending changes in the European market in 1992 represent new challenges to UK power engineers. In addition, there are new markets to be served in the developing world. The resultant problems and opportunities are the theme of the 1990 Hunter Memorial Lecture. The way in which power engineers have tackled changing markets and technology in recent years is described, using a series of examples from a range of equipment. The author concludes with a description of the construction, by British engineers, of a new 1000 MW coal-fired power station in India overcoming the challenges of geography, climate and cultural differences in the process.<>
