Syracuse University SVP and CFO Amir Rahnamay-Azar knows a thing or two about steam. His university’s steam station has been providing power and more for decades across the university. When it came time for a major retrofit, it came time to revisit facilities that were core to the operation of the institution. As he says, "I need steam, not a steam plant."
So they turned to a Public-Private Partnership, a relationship that allows the university to address their power generation requirements and work with a private organization to manage the infrastructure. Today on NACUBO In Brief, Rahnamay-Azar joins NACUBO’s Megan Schneider to share the journey toward the PPP at Syracuse.
