I am somewhat confused on the relationship between GE Power Systems
and GE Energy.  My friend who works for GE Power Systems in Atlanta
has a security badge that says 'GE Power Systems' as does the sign to
his building, but his official title is an employee of GE Energy.

The websites and are identical.  What
is the relationship between these two companies?  I recently learned
each company has their own CEO, but it appears as if they are only one

Hello joe_oversby,

General Electric lists GE Energy, and not GE Power Systems, among its businesses.

"Business Directory"
General Electric Company

You will notice that "GE Power Systems" appears in 2003 press
releases, while "GE Energy" appears in 2004 press releases.  (If you
click on the last press release of 2003, and the first of 2004, you'll
see a change from "About GE Power Systems" to "About GE Energy.")

"2003 Press Releases"
GE Energy

"2004 Press Releases"
GE Energy

So it appears that at the end of 2003 or beginning of 2004, the name
changed.  An article from that time confirms this impression.

"GE Power profit falls in 2003" (January 16, 2004) ["GE Power Systems,
the Atlanta-based GE division renamed GE Energy in late 2003 ..."]

The old name may linger on in certain respects, perhaps out of
tradition, habit, or the expense of changing it.  But officially, the
name is now GE Energy.
