Can GE improve the efficiency of my steam power plant?

YES. Applying GE’s full suite of upgrade solutions to the world’s existing fleet could improve the average efficiency of coal plants from 34% to 38%. That four-point improvement is the equivalent of removing all the CO2 emissions from Germany. And every point of efficiency gained means around 3% less coal is needed for the same output, adding up to $5 million per year in additional value for a typical 1,000 MW power plant.
