In the face of environmental scrutiny, regulatory pressure and global shortages, where next for the water industry?
Join us to hear from our esteemed panel of industry experts, including Keynote, Jamie Tunnicliffe, Head of Investor Relations at Ofwat, on the anticipated regulatory changes in AMP7 in the UK water sector, and their impact for investors and funders of the sector. How best can stakeholders balance investment in the network, customer satisfaction and environmental standards, whilst optimising the capital structure to deliver value for investors and funders? To what extent can project finance or alternative approaches deliver essential water infrastructure, marrying the appetite of investors with the essential needs of the end user?
Do direct procurement options such as Thames Tideway provide a successful model for delivering investment alongside regulated utilities, or just add unnecessary complexity to an industry that has enough moving parts already? Andrew Cox, Managing Director at Allianz Capital Partners, will provide an overview of some of the pitfalls and quick wins involved in getting the Thames Tideway project delivered.
