The third year of Powering Improvement focused on asset management and maintenance although the work in support of the previous years’ themes of leadership and occupational health and wellbeing continued.

The year was championed by Robert Davis, Group CEO for EA Technology Ltd. All ENA and Energy UK companies have detailed systems and procedures in place to manage their assets, many of which are accredited to BSI PAS55. The intention for 2012 was to focus on the “softer” aspects of asset management and to produce sector-specific high level guidance linked to the over-arching Powering Improvement themes i.e. leadership, competence and worker involvement. This included a competency framework for asset management and maintenance within the electricity sector, collating case studies highlighting best practice and developing high level guidance demonstrating the link between asset management and health and safety. This work and the importance of asset management was showcased at ENA and individual company workshops.
