Response to Ofwat’s Consultation on Minor Revisions to Water Efficiency Target Methodology (2012)
Waterwise is extremely supportive of Ofwat’s plans to put in place a framework to incentivise and reward water companies for work to help develop robust evidence on the effectiveness of water efficiency measures. This framework would allow companies’ contributions to a collaborative evidence base fund to count against a small proportion of their volumetric base targets. We report here discussions on governance of the fund agreed by the companies and the key players in summer 2011. We are cautious about removal of the cap on soft measures.
