The FlexEfficiency 50 Combined Cycle Power Plant is GE’s latest innovation in gas turbine technology, engineered to deliver cleaner, more efficient energy onto the power grid and into our homes. The first product in GE’s new FlexEfficiency portfolio, the FlexEfficiency 50 plant will enable the integration of more renewable resources onto the power grid by combining efficiency and flexibility to rapidly ramp up when the wind is not blowing or the sun is not shining, and to efficiently ramp down when they are available.
Demand for renewable energy is growing. As additional renewable sources join the grid, reliable power generation and stress on the grid both become larger issues. GE’s new natural gas-driven plant can accelerate the widespread adoption of renewable power generation around the world. Its flexible, jet engine-based technology addresses variability, reliability, and the need for lower fuel use and operating costs. The ecomagination-qualified FlexEfficiency 50 plant does this while simultaneously helping utilities take advantage of the growing trend to use abundant, cleaner-burning natural gas for power generation.* Trademark of the General Electric Company
