GE Innovation Centre in Calgary, Alberta opensEngineering
Mississauga, ON – The new GE Innovation Centre in Calgary, Alberta makes use of state-of-the-art GE Lighting technology, fixtures and lamps to light this one-of-a-kind space.
The GE Innovation Centre focuses on commercial discovery and collaboration, and leverages GE’s global expertise, industrial scope and technology to address challenges across the energy, healthcare, transportation and finance sectors. The GE Innovation Centre is part of GE Canada’s “Memorandum of Understanding” (MOU) with the Alberta government, which was signed in 2010 and designed to provide opportunities to explore applications of technologies and opportunities for commercialization.
“We view Canada as an important participant in the growth of the global economy,” said John Rice, Vice Chairman GE, and President & CEO GE Global Growth and Operations. “Alberta’s position as a global energy leader, along with its entrepreneurial success, and commitment to research and innovation are key attributes that influenced GE’s location decision.”
The following GE Lighting products were used to light and maximize efficiency throughout this new facility:
