GE Data Visualization: Solar Power, Wind Power, & More

GE Data Visualization: Solar Power, Wind Power, & More

It was interesting to see that GE actually mentioned solar in annual reports way back in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, but looking into that more closely, I noticed that two of those three mentions were regarding solar in a space-exploration context. It’s not surprising to see that there was a burst of solar discussion and activity in the 1970s, mostly discussing demonstration projects, nascent solar technology, and researching possibilities for the distant future. But probably more important is the consistent mention of solar in recent years, which is focused around deployment of large solar projects and advancing commercially viable solar technology. This is reflective of changes in the solar energy sector as a whole, but it also indicates that GE is putting its big foot forward to help advance and capitalize on this promising sector.
