Major changes are sweeping across the energy industry, including a shift towards renewables and electric transportation and a transition towards performance-based rates for utilities. Customers’ expectations are rising, and they are looking to interact with us as conveniently and easily as they do with digital retailers like Amazon. As a utility operating in the forward-looking states of MA, RI and NY, National Grid is leading the way on climate change mitigation with our clean energy plan. We must deliver on these plans without significantly raising costs for our customers while continuing to deliver shareholder value.
The Wholesale Networks business (comprising of Transmission, Generation and Energy Procurement) is central to driving this transition to clean energy. The Planning and Performance Management team plays an important role by working closely with the Wholesale Networks senior leadership team to develop strategic plans, manage business performance, risks, and compliance. We set the pace and keep executives and their teams on track to deliver excellence on an aggressive timeline. We work cross-functionally to ensure the achievement of department objectives. We collaborate with other Wholesale Networks teams to manage our strategic portfolio and change the way the business unit works to be more transparent, innovative and performance focused.
