Positioning for tomorrow

It’s a moment when our customers are being called to transform—but we are transforming, too. Over the past 130 years, we’ve rewritten and redesigned our company to meet the challenges we faced yesterday, today, and tomorrow. That’s why we’re poised for the digital industrial era, and we’re ready to help lead our customers forward into a new future.


Industry Leading Software Requires:

  • Modular apps
  • Brilliant UI/UX
  • Common data layer
  • Interoperability
  • Execution and service excellence

Software is mission critical

The Energy grid is moving to an era of Digital Energy. We take the power of operational software and combine it with analytics to optimize your network. By creating a common data fabric, making applications modular, layering in machine learning, and taking a distributed approach with architecture and execution, we can help you achieve Network-Level Optimization.

What is Network-Level Optimization?

Network-Level Optimization is a single source of truth for the electric delivery system, a cohesive, all-encompassing model of equipment, wiring, devices, and other grid components, as-designed and as-operated. It’s a digital brain that leverages data across the enterprise to achieve new levels of productivity and profitability.


Leverage Digital Energy grid solutions to bridge the gap between predictive and prescriptive—connecting traditionally siloed systems, and providing integrated workflows delivered via a brilliant UI/UX. 


Accelerate the transformation to an autonomous future that connects and orchestrates in new ways, leveraging data across the enterprise using advanced analytics, machine learning, and AI—while remaining flexible on-premise, on the edge, and in the cloud.

New frontiers in self-healing power systems to boost network reliability

Britain’s biggest electricity network operator, UK Power Networks, is rolling out Primary Outage Restoration Tool (PORT) software, developed with GE Digital, which reconnects supplies faster via healthy alternative circuits following an Extra High Voltage (EHV) fault.


Jim Walsh, General Manager for GE Digital’s Grid Software said: “UK Power Networks is a leader in providing innovative solutions to meet customer needs. We are delighted to be a partner with UK Power Networks as we work together to develop products and technology that help the electric grid to be smarter, more flexible, and more reliable.”
