Environmental challenges and benefits for the grid

Under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), world leaders convened to sign the 2015 Paris Agreement, committing to significant reductions in their nation’s greenhouse gas emissions and pledging funds to support adaptation strategies. The agreement is significant insofar as it reflects a global consensus that climate change is among the critical challenges of our generation and that it can only be addressed by global commitment to a comprehensive and multi-faceted strategy. GE is well positioned to play an important role in helping bend the climate change curve, and our products and innovations are helping customers achieve even greater reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, including:

  • Renewable integration: enabling intermittent energy sources to integrate grid balance through software and dedicated equipment
  • Energy efficiency: reduce loss of transmission through advanced software and equipment
  • CO2 emission reduction: contribute to reducing CO2 emissions through energy efficiency and increased use of lowCO2 energy sources
