Capital Improvement Projects (CIP)

Protect Data and Assets

Energy companies and their management teams are frequent targets of cyberattacks, with opportunities for cybercriminals to infiltrate your system and cause costly breaches increasing. Testing your current systems can evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.

Data-Driven Decision Making

Modern data technologies have transformed how businesses operate and make decisions. Evolving your company into a data-driven organization can harness the power of the vast amounts of data you collect so you can make more informed and timely decisions.

Generation Assets

The power generation mix continues to shift based on economic, political, and user demands, pressuring utilities to find new ways to source power efficiently. Learn to build dynamic teams and evaluate your power sources as you move through these transitions.

Meet Tax Obligations

The expenses you can include in recovery rates, and how you record regulatory assets, are strictly monitored by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. Reviewing these costs and determining how to follow government guidelines is crucial to make sure your business meets its accounting obligations.
