New GE combined cycle power plant delivers both flexibility and efficiency; enables greater use of wind, solar and natural gas on grid 26 May 2011 GE unveiled the FlexEfficiency 50 Combined Cycle Power Plant, engineered to deliver a combination of flexibility and efficiency in power generation. GE drew from the company’s jet engine expertise to engineer a single-shaft plant that will ramp up at a rate of more than 50 megawatts per minute, twice the rate of today’s industry benchmarks. By rapidly ramping up and down in response to fluctuations in wind and solar power, the technology will enable the integration of more renewable resources into the power grid, GE says.
