GE’s new materials and eco-design studies accelerate insulation and environmental innovation for high voltage solutions

The evolving power environment is mainly steered by decarbonization and efficiency drivers. Utilities and equipment manufacturers in the T&D industry are seeking to deliver solutions with the optimal cost, lowest carbon footprint and greater reliability. Innovation is one of the powerful ways to remain competitive, compliant with latest technical standards and environmental regulations and maintain a prevailing technological advantage.

GE’s materials and eco-design studies, tests and impact evaluation accelerate insulation and environmental innovation for high voltage solutions and provide additional value to R&D, sourcing, sourcing, quality control and EHS activities.

The studies are delivered by GE’s Subject Matter Experts based in the Global Technology Center, the team who brings disruptive technologies to the industry such as g3, the environmental friendly gas to replace the SF6 in HV applications, biodegradable and vegetable oil for power transformer or recyclable thermoplastic for gas-insulated substation.
