Meeting the challenge

Climate change

Addressing climate change must be an urgent global priority. To change course, the world must act quickly to decarbonize every aspect of modern life, from transportation to power. This requires a global decarbonization effort built on cooperation and coordination from every major institution, government, and company to face and meet the challenge.

Speed and scale—a powerful combination

GE Vernova knows that the power sector serves as a model for other industries around the world. We believe that lower-carbon solutions, such as renewable energy supported by gas power, can contribute to a more decarbonized energy future. Their complementary nature offers tremendous potential to help cut carbon emissions  with the speed and scale the world requires.

Building towards zero—fuel for the future

When it comes to gas power, coal-to-gas switching represents a fast and effective win for emissions reduction in many regions around the world. In addition, switching turbines from natural gas to hydrogen, and introducing carbon capture solutions, can lead to low or near zero carbon emissions.

GE Vernova offers the industry’s most experienced gas turbine fleet in hydrogen and similar low-BTU fuel operations, with more than eight million operating hours in decades of use across more than 100 gas turbines. And we continue to invest in research and development into hydrogen and carbon capture technologies in close partnership with GE Vernova’s Global Research Center—to help further advance a low or near-zero carbon footprint for gas power.

The inherent trilemma

More power, less emissions

Our position on decarbonization takes into account the “trilemma” facing every country when it comes to the future of energy: simultaneously balancing affordability, reliability, and sustainability. Depending on the level of economic development in each country, the solution to the trilemma looks different. We offer customized technology that supports decarbonization across the mix of energy sources unique to each grid. Our world-record-holding high efficiency gas turbines and upgrade solutions, fast and flexible aeroderivatives and tailor-made studies by our Energy Consulting team can make a more universal decarbonization of the energy system possible and easier.

What it means for you

A deep dive into recent U.S. legislation impacting decarbonization

Congress has enacted two landmark climate change laws—the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Both aim to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by more than 40%* by 2030 while also advancing U.S. investments in breakthrough power solutions. With the industry's broadest portfolio across the energy value chain, GE Vernova is uniquely positioned to help the United States see the promise of these laws become reality.

  • Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)
  • Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)
Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)

The IRA includes multiple clean-energy tax credits, helping to promote U.S. energy security, create jobs and investments, and reduce CO2 emissions. GE Vernova's portfolio of collective expertise in wind, gas, hydro, storage, nuclear, and grid will help accelerate the country's energy transition—today and in the future.

Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)

The IIJA is a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s infrastructure and competitiveness. The law is aimed at modernizing the electricity grid to improve resiliency. IIJA also invests in the deployment of breakthrough technologies to accelerate energy innovation.

Regional white papers

GE Vernova knows there’s not a one-size-fits-all technology solution for decarbonization. The optimum choice for a specific region or country depends on many factors—including fuel availability, pricing and security, land constraints, where the region is in its transition to a decarbonized future, and any decarbonization policies or commitments that are in place or anticipated.
