With our inhouse experts, we can provide holistic studies that include power economics assessments for the energy transition and software tools to determine whether a project is economically feasible; grid stability and integration studies that evaluate the grid, transmission & distribution, and pathways to integrate conventional, renewable and emerging power sources; and carbon management consulting that inform customers’ strategies to lower their greenhouse gas and carbon footprint.
We have ~140 energy experts throughout 12 countries, and more than 100 patents.
Our Consulting Services team addresses our customers’ challenges in a holistic way, with studies that explore the economic and physical aspects of proposed projects at both the project and system level. Our deep software base provides the foundational knowledge needed to develop holistic studies tailored to your specific goals.
Energy providers, distributors, consumers, and stakeholders need to base their decisions not only on technical considerations, but also on a range of economic, policy and regulatory drivers. Consulting Services has cross-functional teams that can weave stability and adequacy analysis into technical and economic recommendations and solutions.
We provide policy, planning and investment decision expertise to help you make complex energy decisions while reducing potential risks. We analyze electric power market conditions, system dispatch and operations, and energy policy implications to help you make strategic planning decisions in today's often uncertain world.
The Consulting Services team has comprehensive, global experience in power system studies and in-depth experience analyzing all aspects of power plant and transmission system dynamic controls for successful grid integration of technology.
With focus areas including grid modernization, reactive power adequacy, distributed generation, distribution automation and smart gird analysis, and T&D long-range planning, we can help you plan, design, and operate interconnected power systems.
Our assessments inform customer strategy and roadmaps to unlock opportunities to reduce and remove greenhouse gas (GHG) and CO2 emissions, building the foundation for future energy systems. We can assess your current GHG emissions and provide tailored analytics and processes to help you track and understand your CO2 impact. We’ll work with you to develop a strategic approach to meet your net zero targets in the cleaner energy future.
reduction in CO2 emissions (35% H2 by volume, cofiring at 47 MW)
overall drop in CO2 emissions as a result of hydrogen fuel fraction
Recently The New York Power Authority (NYPA), the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and GE Vernova Consulting Services (GCS) conducted a test demonstration to study impacts on operability and emissions while operating on a blend of hydrogen and natural gas. The Brentwood Small Power Plant was the staging ground to vet the changes power plants need to operate on this zero-carbon fuel. The results? Decreased carbon emissions, continued thermal plant reliability, and perhaps a new key to unlock a cleaner energy future.

additional renewable power on the grid
Working with Shakti Foundation, CEA, POSOCO, and MNRE, GCS developed an assessment to determine whether India’s power grid could remain stable and meet load requirements while integrating additional renewable power sources. In their assessment process, GCS developed a production simulation model in MAPS to examine the hourly and annual impact on system operations and economics, evaluated operational issues, and used MARS to assess the reliability of India’s grid system and analyze additional generation capacity requirements to meet target LOLE levels..
From 5% to ~35%
wind energy by 2025
>1/3 of Canada’s power
can come from wind
In collaboration with the Canadian Renewable Energy Association, GCS developed a study to help Canadian policymakers and planners understand the impact of higher penetration of wind energy—from 5% today to 35% by 2025. GCS needed to determine how to most effectively integrate large amounts of wind within the provinces, so they conducted the first-ever nationwide analysis of wind energy integration. Analysis shows Canada can get more than one-third of its electricity from wind without compromising grid reliability, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and generating new export opportunities.
renewable power goal
power generation needs
With India’s ambitious renewable capacity goals, the GE Vernova Consulting Services team was called on to determine the technical and commercial feasibility of an integrated wind, solar and energy storage (IWSES) plant with combined generation capacity of more than 1,200 MW. The Consulting Services team provided a blueprint for developing the financial and technical elements of an IWSES plant that addressed challenges by connecting and siting wind, solar and battery storage in the same place, and laid out the business case to make it economically viable.
The power system of the future will be complex and multifaceted. For Great Britain to meet this ambitious challenge, it will need to enable and accelerate investments, expedite the implementation of market reforms, and adapt energy policy and regulation.
