Session: Business Benefits of Asset Management from a Strong Economic Approach
Business Benefits of Asset Management from a Strong Economic Approach
As a public power entity, economic and financial decisions often have to be balanced against socially-driven goals. Asset investment decisions made by Bonneville Power must be governed by a robust business case and prioritization framework, taking into account financial, economic and societal benefits and their corresponding effect on rates paid by electric power customers. Affordability and competitiveness is at the center of the decision making process. Electric generation and high voltage transmission rates are closer to competitive rates in the marketplace today than ever before. As Bonneville Power strives to remain the provider of choice for the Pacific Northwest region, it must continue developing best-in-class asset management practices to ensure scarce resources are invested in assets at the right place and at the right time.
