General Electric Co.’s newest high- capacity turbine may draw orders from wind farms across Europe because its increased yield makes equipment upgrades more viable, said Victor Abate, who runs the renewable energy unit.
General Electric Co ., which has become the world’s second-biggest wind turbine maker in less than a decade, is expanding production of two thin-film solar products to increase its renewable-energy business.
General Electric Co. , the largest supplier of wind turbines in the U.S., expects to exceed the 12.8 percent solar-efficiency record for thin-film modules when its first commercial-scale panel factory opens in 2013.
General Electric plans to disclose today a project to build the biggest solar panel plant in the U.S., the New York Times reported, citing Victor Abate, vice president for the company’s renewable energy business.
Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s largest maker of wind turbines, hasn’t won an order in the largest global market since 2008. Chief Executive Officer Ditlev Engel aims to change that this year, with an expansion that may topple General Electric Co.’s U.S. lead.
