31st July 2012In July 2012 CEPA published a report on Incentives and Menu options for the UK water regulator, Ofwat. The report examines two key questions at the heart of the concerns facing Ofwat, namely: (i) what incentives should be adopted? and (ii) what would be a viable menu system for the next price control (PR14) and beyond look like? CEPA's recommendation from the report is that menus should continue to be used by Ofwat and that an extension to include opex is appropriate. The report can be found here.
