GE and China-based XD Electric Group have formed a transmission and distribution (T&D) partnership combining GE's grid automation capabilities and global energy presence with XD's portfolio of high-voltage (HV) power equipment. GE now owns 15% of XD Electric and holds one board seat.

GE and XD say they will offer end-to-end T&D solutions to meet the growing demand for electricity in emerging economies, as well as provide customers in developed countries with HV solutions to modernize their aging grids.

“Our investment in XD Electric is core to our long-term strategy to build a world-class T&D franchise and become a leading provider of grid modernization solutions,” says Dan Janki, president and CEO of GE Energy Management. “The partnership will enhance our ability to compete in fast-growing regions such as China where XD Electric has a strong presence.”
