Energy Efficiency, GHG Emissions - July 21, 2022
GE Digital Partners with Microsoft, Teradata for Sustainability Solution
GE Digital announced that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Microsoft and Teradata to develop a solution designed to reduce carbon emissions.
The three companies expect to work together to develop an offering designed to help empower aircraft operators with the tools they need to record, report, and reduce emissions
The collaboration brings the software solutions of three companies together to target the challenge of reducing aviation emissions.
GE Digital provides high-fidelity flight data and fuel efficiency analytics to identify specific opportunities to reduce fuel and emissions.
Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability enables reporting across aircraft operation stakeholders through its common data model and streamlined data capture via Microsoft Sustainability Manager and a broad array of calculation services.
The Teradata Vantage multi-cloud data and analytics platform via Flight Data Link™, a solution developed with GE Digital, allows for the integration of additional operational and financial data sources via the airline industry’s data model, as well as powerful analytics to understand root cause of non-adherence to fuel saving opportunities.
“Sustainability is core to the future of the aviation industry; our ambition is net zero by 2050,” said Andrew Coleman, General Manager of GE Digital Aviation Software in a statement. “While new technologies are key to achieving that in the long term, we need to make progress now. We have the data and solutions that can help the industry make strides by leveraging data airlines already have.”
