The Scrin are known to construct these mysterious structures to increase the output of their Tiberium fields. Since Earth's Tiberium deposits were less developed than the Scrin expected, these structures saw widespread use during their Invasion of Earth. Exactly how they function is never explained.
Growth Accelerators can be planted onto the central spawn point of a Tiberium field to increase the regrowth of the new crystal deposits by 50%. Though expensive, they are invaluable for sustained battles of attrition.
Role in Global Conquest
The Growth Accelerator is used as a support power in Global Conquest, where it increases the regeneration rate of Tiberium within its area for economic purposes. This support power costs 1000 credits, requires a Tier 3 base in the map, and can only be placed adjacent to one as well.
