      Security and Emissions Compliance, Simplified

      Leverage Data and Analytics to Fulfill Compliance Objectives

      Avoiding compliance issues while responsibly running the power operation is something that every plant manager understands. Meeting production obligations, balancing load with emissions and keeping within guidelines for security regulations means expending time and resources. GE’s analytic solutions suddenly make the job that much easier.

      Emissions Control

      Every plant action comes with tradeoffs. Decisions between increasing output, incurring wear on production assets and emissions output are made continuously. However, being able to make those in an automated, real-time way ensures that plant emissions stay within predefined boundaries. GE’s offerings provide the insights and actions to control emissions to a refined and proactive degree. Detailed reporting help operations managers monitor emissions for continuous compliance with regulatory mandates.

      Cyber Security

      New regulations such as NERC CIP are putting power companies on alert that managing cyber security for industrial and control systems is no longer optional. Penalties for not doing so are substantial, but more importantly, the impacts of a cyber attack can be even more catastrophic. 64% of power and utilities believe their security strategies are not aligned with today’s risk environment. Many are now taking action to ensure protection across the attack profile.
