Powering Efficiency Center of Excellence
Countries are putting more emphasis on attaining the right mix of fuel sources to meet both demand and emissions requirements. 41% of the world’s electricity is being produced from coal. While there are alternative fuel sources, many countries have energy needs that, because of economic and local resource dynamics, turn to coal as a stable and accessible energy resource. As a result, coal-fired power generation accounts for nearly 75 percent of the electricity sector’s carbon emissions because many plants are older and inefficient.
That’s where we come in:
A recent GE study that found carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the world’s steam fleet can be reduced by 11 percent when existing hardware and software solutions are fully applied. With the largest services portfolio in the industry and our ability to support 90+ OEM brands across all major plant assets, we are perfectly positioned to take on this challenge.
Our Powering Efficiency Center of Excellence (COE) was established to bring together cross-business experts in our energy businesses to apply a total plant hardware and software solution approach to boost the efficiency of the world’s new and existing coal-fired power plants and significantly reduce their emissions.
This global COE, headquartered in Baden, is creating integrated solutions as well as providing vision and oversight around the world. Regional teams are focusing on engineering capabilities and local execution, while a set of financing solutions are helping customers develop transformative projects toward a lower carbon intensity power generation mix.
