Product description

Utility providers are under pressure from all sides to reduce costs, while improving availability, reliability, safety and sustainability: and as economies battle to recover from the 2008-2010 recession, utility company spending and results will be under closer scrutiny than ever to deliver more performance for less. This book explores the new techniques which are being used by leading utilities While relevant to everyone regulating, supplying or working in the utility sector, this book is important for us all. As the assets employed by utilities account for 5% of global GDP the cost of replacing our aging utility infrastrucutrue is unaffordable. However, utility services are essential to civilisation. Without clean water, safe sewerage and reliable power, economies collapse and societies are prey to darkness and disease. This book answers the key question of how utilities can select the right goals, organisational design, culture and engineering tools, whch allow them to manage their complex asset bases and deliver truly excellent performance. With 37 case studies and 50 diagrams, it illustrates the snakes and ladders that leading utilities have experienced on the path to excellence.
