GE Brilliant Wind Turbines + PowerUp = Big Clean Energy Win (CT Exclusive)

Wind power is already extremely cheap — the cheapest option for new electricity in many if not most regions of the world. It is also extremely effective at reducing CO2 emissions and other pollution. But it’s still something like a “teenager” or “young adult” in its development. There’s room for improvement.

In the following interview with GE’s Andy Holt, the general manager of Renewable Energy Services at GE Energy, conducted at GE’s recent Minds + Machines conference*, Andy discusses how GE’s new(ish) Brilliant wind turbines and brand new PowerUp technology make wind turbines and wind farms even more efficient, productive, and profitable. Exciting stuff. Check it out and share it with your friends!
