Feature Article: Ask the Expert—Improving Utility Asset Management Practices Through Adoption of ISO 55000

T&D World interviewed Boudewijn Neijens, Copperleaf CMO, for its Ask The Expert series.

But today’s environment is more complex and dynamic, particularly as utilities are decarbonizing their generation portfolios, which creates ripple effects upstream and downstream.

The pandemic has also created huge financial and logistical challenges in asset maintenance and replacement.
