Utility Capital Expenditure - UK - December 2018
“The approach to infrastructure investment is in transition across the utility industry. Whereas spending in the past was mainly output-driven, investment is now more centred on innovation, higher efficiencies and long-term outcomes. The rising pressure from industry regulators to reduce costs for consumers is another challenge utility operators face.
Network operators have also been warned by utility regulators that they will face tougher price control and performance targets in the upcoming spending periods. These cost and efficiency pressures are passed onto the supply chain. Collaboration, technology and innovation will play a key role in enabling utilities and their supply chain to deliver future capital projects in the most efficient way.”
