Overview

With the focus on return on investment and new technologies, the power industry today is much different than it was years ago. A unique set of management skills is necessary to supervise construction or retrofitting of a power generation plant, given today's bottom-line emphasis on environment, fuel efficiency, up-to-date technical features, and the industry's loss of experienced craftsmen and supervisory personnel. This book explains the power of economics behind the industry and how to manage the finances of work activities.
