As the world transitions from carbon-emitting to renewable energy resources, our energy experts leveraged expertise in the LM6000 platform as the ideal renewable-support technology.
In 2018, we embarked on a journey to support the Texas grid with 4,000 MW of reduced emissions, and fast-start peaking power. Today, we look to scale our platform to the rest of the United States and beyond to close the supply gaps associated with renewable intermittency.
Provide a single-source solution to enhance energy security in any power-generation market.
Create a proven pathway for integrating and enabling renewable resources, including wind and solar as baseload power.
Accelerate carbon-neutral power generation technologies including hydrogen power and energy storage.
