Competition in the Water Industry part 1

Competition is increasingly being seen across the water sector as a mechanism to deliver substantial improvements, especially at present in the UK. Those of us already working in a free market, where competition requires us to constantly innovate and improve, know that it can drive 'step changes' in industries. However water utilities, like other utilities, operate in a different environment than many other sectors. In a short series of blogs, I will look at the potential for competition in the water sector, its advantages and dis-advantages, and how companies can best manage and respond to the changes that will occur. The blog will focus on the UK, as a number of changes in competition are being proposed there.
