Potable Water and Sewerage - UK - April 2017
“In 2015/16, the first year of the new five-year asset management period AMP6, gross capital expenditure across the water and sewerage industry was recorded at £4.45 billion. The figure is not directly comparable to previous years due to changes in reporting categories, but capital expenditure is still believed to have been lower than previous years. This largely reflects the completion of many EU legislation-driven capital projects, which dominated activity in recent spending periods, and a shift in focus from capital spending to totex.
For AMP6, Ofwat has introduced a move towards totex, combining capital and operational expenditure. Ofwat believes this will remove a bias toward capital programmes as capital expenditure has often been preferred over operational expenditure in delivery solutions due to the design of the regulatory framework.”
