At present, the water market in England and Wales is mostly operated as a series of regional monopolies with retail competition limited to only the very largest consumers.
From April 2017, the water market in England and Wales will be opened up, allowing non-domestic water customers to choose both their water and wastewater suppliers. This abolition of the regional monopolies is likely to drive suppliers to deliver innovations in customer service, metering, water efficiency and self-service, all of which focus on helping customers to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of their water supply. These changes provide a variety of opportunities and incentives for you to reduce both your consumption and the costs associated with water and wastewater procurement.
THE PROCESS: WHAT WE DELIVER
The imminent retail competition is likely to drive suppliers to deliver innovations in customer service, metering, water efficiency and self-service, all of which focus on helping customers to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of their water supply. Customers can also expect the competitive water market to be increasingly served by intermediaries such as brokers, procurement advisors and buying groups, who could dis-intermediate the customer relationship with the water retailer, while providing the benefits already associated with such services for electricity and gas contracts.
These changes provide a variety of opportunities and incentives for you to reduce both your consumption and costs associated with water and wastewater procurement. Our team can assist you in making the most of these opportunities.
