Calgary’s GE Innovation Centre shines

The GE Innovation Centre In Calgary focusses 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,” says 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.

It comes with a variety of dimming protocols, including 0-10V, Phase and DAU. The Infusion LED module allows you to select light levels or energy consumption levels based on your needs.
