Can water companies harness Ofwat’s £200 million innovation fund to transform the sector?

In December last year Ofwat announced that an innovation competition for a £200 million fund, financed by a ring-fenced levy on customers’ bills, would now go ahead for AMP7.

At this exciting and pivotal moment for the UK water sector Utility Week, in association with CGI, has conducted a landmark qualitative research report to support water companies as they shape their strategy to take advantage of the new funding.

This report has been conducted through in-depth interviews with water company chief executives. It provides a comprehensive insight into the opportunities the fund presents, and the obstacles that need to be overcome for it to deliver on its most ambitious of aims.
