Integrated Programming to Meet Organization Expectation, Industry Best Practices
Utilities need to address grid and other infrastructure reliability, resiliency, modernization and security needs via an integrated asset lifecycle risk program. A risk program should be anchored on data quality, asset condition assessments and optimized investment strategies that are repeatable, justifiable and auditable.
Several incidents recently highlight the necessity for more rigorous planning and investment for reliable grid and integration of distributed energy resources with existing infrastructure. Investment decisions must be made in consideration of risk-reduction value per dollar invested under a comprehensive Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) value framework that provides consistency and continuous optimization across the enterprise.
