Asset management roles require a high-level understanding of the overall sector. Once a power generation asset is commissioned (i.e. live and working) the energy needs to move along transmission lines. In order to get this energy to a customer, someone needs to monitor how much power is being generated.
Asset managers make sure the asset is performing effectively and optimised while at the same time regulating the power company is meeting all requirements, and selling their power to someone that they have agreed a commercial contract with.
Asset Management in Financial and Technical Roles
