New York Power Authority's Asset Management Journey

Zoom recording of the Chapter Meeting presentation: 20220308_PMIW_March_Chapter_Meeting_Presentation.mp4

The New York Power Authority is charged with creating the resources to power the economic growth and competitiveness of New York State. It is our mission. It is what we do. We employ six strategic initiatives to accomplish this mission. One of those initiatives, a strong, robust, and effective Asset Management program, is key to our success. We are Asset Savvy.

In 2014, we set out on a journey. Our aspiration wasn’t merely to better manage our assets but instead to develop a best-in-class Asset Management program. This six-year journey culminated in NYPA being recognized as the first electric utility in North America to be certified as ISO-55001 compliant.

This presentation will share a bit about the New York Power Authority’s Asset Management Journey, what it means to be Asset Savvy, and how collaboration, communication and change management are key ingredients to project success.
