2020 Strategic Refresh

PUF 2.0 - October 15, 2017

The New York Power Authority is the largest state power organization in the United States, with 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines. NYPA management envisions 50% of the electricity supply coming from renewable energy by 2030, and they want to reduce greenhouse gases 40% by 2030, among other targets. These goals, originally set forth in 2014, are being updated in their 2020 Strategic Refresh.

NYPA CEO Gil Quiniones says, “Now we need to take into account what has happened over the past few years. Technology certainly is moving a lot faster than what we had anticipated. Customer preferences and choices are different than even just three or four years ago.”

“We are going to be digitizing the NYPA Enterprise. That includes all the support functions, whether it’s finance, procurement, supply chain, or HR. All the way to the workforce.”

“Somebody told me that this is more of a lifestyle change than a diet. The transformation has to be full and organic. It has to be in our DNA.”

“Innovation is centered around the customer.”

“First we create an environment where it’s okay to fail. Fail fast, iterate, and get better. That’s a culture that we’ve really encouraged here.”

“Our mission is very special. What we do benefits New Yorkers every day, all the time, and immediately.”
