Utility Cost Management—A Strategic Approach

Cost management and budgeting in the utility industry are often based on prior year actual numbers and activity, without questioning why specific line items need funding, or evaluating the risk of not funding or carrying out a particular project or activity in a given year. MCR’s nuclear practice has developed a proprietary, strategic approach to facility-wide cost management, capital project evaluation, and capitalization vs expensing decisions with demonstrated savings in the hundreds of millions of dollars. This strategic approach is outlined in our most recent whitepaper.
