E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) has signed a deal to install GE's PowerUp platform to enhance 469 of its GE 1.5-77 wind turbines across five wind farms.

According to GE, PowerUp is a customized software-enabled platform that increases a wind farm's output by up to 5%. Andy Holt, general manager of the company's renewable energy projects and services organization, says, "Without any development risk, or installation expense, EC&R will see the equivalent of 19 new turbines in the ground today."

The offering agreement between the two companies is an outcomes-based approach, meaning EC&R will pay only on the actual benefit of the PowerUp platform, GE adds.
