Software, hardware upgrades could cut global emissions

According to GE’s first-of-its-kind analysis of global power plants, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the world’s fleet of coal and gas plants can be reduced by 10%. This is equivalent of removing 95% of cars off U.S. roads when existing hardware and software solutions are fully applied.

“The technology to make coal and gas more efficient is available now – countries and companies alike should be taking advantage of this to lower their carbon output. These actions should be taken as a complement to continued investment in renewable energy sources as we all strive to find carbon reductions across the energy mix,” said Deb Frodl, Global Executive Director, Ecomagination, GE.
