Powering the World

Powering the World

GE’s power technology generates a quarter of the world’s daily electricity. Now, that’s a lot of power! Today there are nearly 10,000 GE gas turbines installed around the world. In this visualization, we took a look at 713 of these gas turbines over the course of 2 weeks to see just how much energy is produced. It’s easy to see that GE technology is hard at work to power the world in which we live.

The data used in this visualization comes from 713 GE gas turbines around the world.
