GE Vernova: Leading a New Era of Energy
Addressing the climate crisis is an urgent global priority. If we want our energy future to be different … we must be different. That is our singular mission.
GE, the 130-year-old energy pioneer. Our unwavering commitment to powering the planet, now fully focused on the energy transition. No company has the unique combination to pioneer what’s next – just as we have before. As we answer the call with renewed purpose and vigor, we are moving our GE energy businesses—including Renewables, Power, Digital and Energy Financial Services — under one banner to deliver a united, focused, one-of-a-kind force: GE Vernova. Together, with our customers and partners, we will chart the course to a better future.
Our mission is embedded in our new name. We retain our treasured birthright, “GE,” in our name as an enduring and hard-earned badge of quality and ingenuity. “Ver,” “verde,” “verdant,” all signal Earth’s verdant and lush ecosystems. “Nova,” from the Latin “novus,” nods to a new, innovative era of lower carbon energy that GE Vernova will help deliver.
Our new name sounds different, because it is. GE Vernova will act swiftly and surely to help build a cleaner, better future. This is not business as usual: this is business purpose-built to lead the new era of energy.
