Chris Tyler – GE Power

It may seem to the benefit of consumers, but the depressed price of natural gas presents issues to a multinational company’s division whose responsibilities include creating around a third of the world’s electricity from multiple sources—and is also in the midst of a realignment. So it’s a big-picture view that Chris Tyler must take to […]

This is because the company uses two […]
