Celebrating 10 Years of Innovation
We recognize innovation as the key to creating a responsible, sustainable energy future for generations to come. Through investments in technology and building a culture of innovative thinking, we’re advancing low-carbon power and transforming our energy future.
For more than a decade, we’ve developed a track record of investing in leading-edge and best-in-class technology, including implementing emissions reductions upgrades and advancing the development of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) initiatives.
As group of innovators and keen problem-solvers, we work together to turn challenges into opportunities across our business. Some examples of our innovation initiatives include:
- At our Genesee Generating Station we’re currently in year three of our five-year Genesee Performance Standard (GPS), a $35M efficiency improvement program to reduce our carbon footprint by 10% by 2021, and by a further 40% after conversion to natural gas.
- At our Decatur Energy Center, we recently upgraded a combustion turbine to improve efficiency and output, as well as reduce emissions from the 795 MW natural gas facility.
- We’ve invested in C2CNT, a company that has developed and is now applying at scale an innovative technology that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial process streams and transforms it into a useful and high value product called carbon nanotubes.
Today, we remain focused on developing new technologies, new ways of operating, and new ways of thinking to remain at the forefront of our industry.Learn more about Innovation
