Deregulation of the water market could see costs reduced by as much as a fifth.
That’s according to Tony McHardy, Corporate Director at Water Plus, who spoke to ELN last week.
He said: “If we actually look in terms of water efficiency, we think there are between 5% and 20% savings so it’s more about the value added services, it’s more about that resource efficiency.
“Whether that’s water audits, whether it’s process efficiency, that’s where we think the greater savings will actually be.”
He also discussed how the structure of the deregulated water market will benefit consumers in new ways.
Mr McHardy added: “The new water market, it’s not a one size fits all approach so a very small corner shop will want something very different in terms of their experience, in terms of the services, compared to a large industrial customer.
He said it will provide a more bespoke and personal approach to a wider range of individual customers than was previously possible.
He also mentioned a series of new innovations have been made possible by the opening of the water market, including value added services such as flood warnings.
