Options for Promoting Water Efficiency in the Non-Household Water Market (April 2022)
Economic Insight were commissioned by the Retailer Wholesaler Group WESG, supported by the MOSL Market Improvement Fund, to:
⎯ identify and make recommendations on addressing barriers to WE delivery for customers, retailers and wholesalers; and
⎯ assess current and potential future mechanisms / incentives (including financial) that would enable greater volume of WE activity and water savings across the UK NHH market. They recommend that in the short term water efficiency services are led by wholesalers drawing on a ringfenced budget and supported by an appropriate ODI. In the longer term government and regulators can progress measures to better incentivise NHH organisations to proactively save water.
