GROWTH AND POTENTIAL
The onshore wind power industry
Global onshore wind power farms are expected to grow by more than 60 GW in 2019, and global capacity from onshore wind energy applications is projected to reach nearly 750 GW by 2022.
GE is harnessing this increasing onshore wind energy potential with a broad family of smart, modular turbines that are uniquely suited for a variety of wind environments. Our onshore wind power technology and services can help improve cost, capacity and performance over the life of your onshore wind power plant, and our newest turbines are equipped with a digital infrastructure that allows you to connect, monitor, predict and optimize unit and wind farm energy performance.
On average, our onshore wind farm maintenance and energy services improve Annual Energy Production (AEP) by 5% and increase profits by 20%. Our Repower program for onshore wind farms offers customers an affordable way to upgrade aging onshore wind turbines, increasing fleet power output up to 25% and adding up to 20 years to turbine life from the time of repowering.
