Electric car drivers can catch a charge from the wind at the Whole Foods in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The Sanya Skypump combines a 4-kilowatt wind turbine developed by Urban Green Energy with GE’s WattStation to charge EVs. Read more about this innovation at GE Reports.
If a wind turbine could talk, what would it say? To find out, GE is making brilliant machines that can communicate with people. Using data collected by remote sensors, engineers now have real-time information at their fingertips about how a machine is operating and can find out when, for example, a wind turbine requires maintenance. It’s all part of the Industrial Internet, which is connecting machines to people to increase efficiency, minimize waste and change the way the world works.
