APPrO shares its approach to competing in a changing energy landscape

 

 

APPrO President Dave Butters recently explained how APPrO manages the continual flow of challenges cropping up for players operating in the energy sector. Featured in an executive periodical that highlights how Canadian business leaders are setting priorities and directions for their companies, he drew attention to the most critical shared objectives he believes the industry is facing.

 

“We seek to understand the issues that will affect the business success of our members and to help them be as profitable as they can be in a complex, changing environment,' Butters says. APPrO works to define the top issues that make the electricity market so challenging for its participants, he notes. “We look for the ones that have the largest impact across the largest number of [our] members and are ones we can do something about,' says Butters, noting that APPrO has built the annual Canadian Power Conference into one of the key venues at which business leaders get an opportunity to work through some of the most challenging cross-cutting questions.

 

Advantage Magazine, which highlights the achievements of Canada’s business leaders, included the feature on Dave Butters and his strategic approach in the April-May-June 2015 edition of its publication.

 

The magazine noted that other rising issues he’s watching include climate change and the mitigation of the carbon footprint, the introduction of smart grids (electrical-supply networks that use digital-communications technology to detect and react to local changes in usage), time-of-use pricing, and the increasingly limited availability of sites for new infrastructure such as power plants and transmission lines. “All of these things are making our members’ lives complex,' Butters says.
