Disruption in AM

Tuesday 12th May saw the Brisbane Chapter host an internationally attended webinar of over 300 delegates on disruption in asset management. This informative session was provided by Denise Brown from Powerlink.

The presentation was in the context of current and future changes in the power transmission industry. The session reflected on the impact of internal drivers and regulatory influences. Denise's presentation also included the challenges of balancing external factors - e.g. renewable energy and large scale battery storage, and how these factors influenced the short and long term decision making in the organisation to support sustainable customer service.
