Building a more sustainable tomorrow

GE Renewable Energy is a trusted energy partner for India. Since the launch of the first wind power project in 1995, GE has installed more than 1.8 GW of onshore wind capacity in India. The future of India’s and the world’s energy lies in renewables. India aims to reduce the use of fossil fuels in electricity generation and completely switch by 2050. GE is committed to help India achieve this goal.

GE’s renewable portfolio is all-encompassing and comprises wind, hydro, new energies, and grid. It combines onshore wind, blades, hydro, storage, and grid solutions as well as hybrid renewables and digital services offerings. Onshore wind power technology and services help improve cost, capacity, and performance over the life of onshore wind power plants. GE’s newest turbines leverage a digital infrastructure that allows customers to connect, monitor, predict and optimize unit and wind farm energy performance in real-time. 

Proprietary technology for wind-solar hybrid power patented by GE India makes renewable energy available 24x7 to a grid through different combinations. Better grid stability and reliability lead to economies of scale, higher efficiency, and lower operational expenses for customers.

GE’s Grid Solutions provides a versatile and robust range of solutions for connecting and evacuating power from generation sources onto the grid, providing utilities with the tools needed to support the increase in demand quickly, safely and efficiently. India’s leading transmission and distribution companies use GE’s Grid technology to provide safe, reliable, and affordable power for the people of the nation.

Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL), that transmits half the country’s electricity, uses GE's Grid Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) and software for enabling India's wide area management system (WAMS). India’s WAMS is the biggest in the world. The Unified Real Time Dynamic State Measurement system (URTDSM) monitors the country's power flow in real time and allows PGCIL to manage the increasing complexity of the grid due to renewable integration.

GE’s LM Technology Center India is the hub of breakthrough innovation in blade technology. Operating in Bengaluru since 2007, it has been spearheading transformation in the blade industry with its futuristic design, testing, and analysis.

Another example of GE’s renewable energy innovation is the 2.7-132 wind turbine that delivers high performance at low wind speeds. These turbines are designed at GE's Technology Center in Bengaluru, manufactured at GE's plants in Vadodara and Bengaluru, and assembled at the multi-modal manufacturing facility in Pune – a true example of our contribution to the nation’s Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliance) initiative.

Today, GE’s enhanced hybrid power generation and transmission capacity balances solar, wind, gas, hydro, and nuclear technologies to help India meet its sustainable energy goals.

Quick facts:

  • Over 3.5 million homes in India are powered by GE wind energy.
  • More than 50% of power flow in India is managed through GE’s equipment and software.
