Balancing asset performance, costs and risks in a changing environment.
Electrical network operators are responsible for delivering high service quality at controlled cost levels, while keeping risks within acceptable boundaries. They need to cope with ageing assets and workforce and changing requirements of efficiency and transparency. At the same time they are also confronted with today’s challenges: the energy transition, the growth of renewables and ongoing electrification. How can asset managers keep the balance, technically and economically, safeguard business values and satisfy stakeholder interests?
Asset management has moved up the agenda of today’s utilities. A new standard (ISO 55000) was issued in 2014. But next to embracing a standard, successful asset management requires a transparent risk framework, and risk-based decision processes and project portfolios, supported by reliable data and adequate information systems. It requires continuous monitoring and improvement, and a change of mindset, embracing new habits (and letting old ones go).
