Utility Capital Expenditure - UK - December 2017
“The business environment is in transition across the utility sectors, with the industry challenged by a changing regulatory environment, climate change, security of supply and uncertainties regarding future network requirements. These factors also influence the industry’s approach to capital expenditure.
Infrastructure investment will continue to be a key focus across the utility sectors, driven both by the need to replace old assets and new capacity requirements on networks. However, approaches to investment are now shifting across sectors due to changes in the regulatory environment, including increased pressure to reduce costs for consumers while ensuring security of supply. There is a focus on innovation, efficiencies and long-term outcomes in infrastructure management and investment, replacing the short-term outputs and capital expenditure preferred in the past. The scope for traditional infrastructure investment may be limited, but there will be more opportunities for companies that can provide innovative solutions for efficient network and asset management.”
