General Electric continues to reshape itself as its leaders slim down what was once one of America’s biggest conglomerates. In November 2021 the company announced what will likely amount to its final breakup: a plan to split into three separate companies focused on aircraft engines, health care, and energy and power, respectively. The health care and energy spinoffs are expected to be completed by the end of 2024. In the meantime, GE remains a major employer and a significant player in green energy, thanks to its leading role in such products as wind turbines and energy-efficiency software. On the latter front, GE’s software arm in January 2022 acquired Opus One, a Canadian startup that helps utilities optimize energy planning.
