Scott Strazik, CEO of GE Vernova, said, “We are thrilled to call Cambridge home as we build plans for the future of GE Vernova. As we plan for our next chapter, Cambridge offers a dynamic environment, steeped in the education, talent, and innovation that will be core components of our work alongside customers to decarbonize power generation and lead the energy transition. We are excited to be continuing GE’s presence in the Greater Boston area, and we look forward to being an active and involved member of the community.”
GE Vernova, GE’s portfolio of energy businesses, is planned for a tax-free investment-grade spin-off from GE in early 2024. The offices at 58 Charles Street in Cambridge will plan to house up to 200 employees. GE Vernova will continue to have a strong U.S. presence in existing locations, including Schenectady, N.Y., Atlanta, Ga., and Greenville, S.C., which are epicenters of manufacturing and business activities for GE Vernova’s businesses. GE worked with BioMed Realty, a Blackstone portfolio company, to identify the location for its global headquarters.

Cambridge offers a growing community focused on the energy transition spanning our own customers, academic and scientific research, policy thought leaders, and investment capital.
