Digital in the Future of Energy

Reducing carbon and costs while providing sustainable, reliable, and affordable power

Renewables and the Future of Energy | Grid Modernization | GE Digital

Decarbonization is mission-critical for the planet

The global energy landscape will change more in the next 10 years than in the previous hundred. As the world’s energy sector moves away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy sources, industrial companies are challenged with addressing this transition in transformative ways.

 

Digitization will be key to making power-generating assets more efficient, the electric grid more secure and resilient, the aviation industry more sustainable, and helping manufacturers reduce waste.

 

 

AI is the Accelerant to the Energy Transition

Research firm Verdantix has published a comprehensive market overview of industrial analytics solutions using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). It uncovers the most prevalent questions to explore as demand increases for scalable, flexible, and user-friendly industrial AI solutions in the energy sector.

Industrial software's role in the energy transition

Solving the energy transition trilemma

Sustainable Energy Transition

GE and an increasing number of our customers are committed to combating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions while meeting industrial and consumer demand for clean, reliable energy.

Reliable Energy Transition

As the industry converts to cleaner energy and variable renewable sources like wind and solar become more available, utilities must balance the power mix to ensure electricity is available when and where it's needed.

Affordable Energy Transition

The global demand for power is estimated to grow by 50% by 2040, which means it’s imperative that energy is affordable, even in a more complex and dynamic environment.
