General Electric is one of the original 12 companies listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1896 and still remains listed after 114 years. General Electric functions in 160 countries as of 2010 and maintains an annual research and development budget of over $6 billion.

keeping with its move towards power infrastructure and alternative energies, GE dedicated a new 45 million Renewable Energy Global Headquarters in Schenectady, N.Y. in 2009. GE’s globally installed fleet of wind turbines generates enough electricity to power an estimated 6 million U.S. homes. In early 2011, the company entered a strategic agreement with China’s Huadian Corporation for a five-year collaboration for combined heat and power distributed energy projects in China. The agreement is an example of GE’s commitment to investing in and identifying solutions to meet the energy needs of the future on a global scale.
