Excited for the big game this weekend? May the most efficient team win.

Even the compressor section of a GE gas turbine rotor has the look & feel of a badass machine.

    Are produced with our high-speed vertical machining centres? Lovely

With our help, the Boeing 777x will be able to handle 30% more power without extra space or weight.

You won't find any elves in this workshop. Currently engineering: cylinder heads for Jenbacher gas engines.

Our wind turbines may not travel as far as jumbo jets, but their power can.

Welcome to the future: Direct write technologies allow us to "ink" sensors and antennas onto not only the tiniest products, but also places that are hardest to reach.

A shiny GEnx engine on a Qatar Airways 787 sits in splendor at the Farnborough International Airshow.

Wind turbines can be up to 1.5x taller than the Statue of Liberty (140 m) and their blades with blades spanning the length of a football field.

Think you're stressed? This is a 15 MW test bay at Clemson University designed to put next-gen GE wind turbines through 20 years of stress in just a few months.

Heavy duty gas turbines show off their artistic side at the Greenville, S.C. plant.

Did you know? The GE Evolution series locomotive weighs 436,000 pounds. That's equivalent to 109 average-sized cars.

Recreational divers normally swim 40 meters deep into the ocean. If you were to dive 330 meters further, you might find one of our subsea separation and boosting units.

Solving the World’s Toughest Energy Challenges

This tiny device contains 400 ohmic MEMS switches, which regulate the flow of electricity and can handle more than 1kW. That's enough to power a microwave for over an hour.

Solving the World’s Toughest Energy Challenges

Pulse detonation engines reduce fuel consumption by 25%. How? By generating shockwaves as badass as the machine itself.

Shaping the Future at GE Global Research

GE locomotives can move 1 ton of goods across roughly 500 mi on a single gallon of fuel. Now that's some real power.

    Isn't this the same marketing that csx trains is doing, yep it is.

GE Evolution Series locomotives pass through the CSX network day and night, helping to ship 50,000 tons of freight across 21,000 miles of track.

The GEnx is 13% more fuel efficient than its predecessor and also the quietest engine GE has produced.
