11th October 2012
The Beesley Lecture held on 11 October 2012 featured CEPA Senior Advisor Jon Stern, a specialist in economic and regulatory issues of the water industry, discuss challenges and opportunities in "Overcoming Barriers to Competition in Water". The lecture examined the journey in the water sector so far, the challenges the water sector faces (including why the choice of water supplier matters and the potential benefits of water trading), different types of competitive benefits, and lessons that can be learnt from other sectors. Jon Stern's main point of argument was that it is important to introduce upstream trading, which would only be possible if the value chain were to be unbundled, as this is where the real benefits lie.
