OFWATs strategy ‘Time to Act, Together” has highlighted the importance of innovation in meeting many of today’s challenges faced by the water industry. Innovation is vital to achieving affordable solutions to long-term challenges and in 2019 Ofwat consulted on a set of proposals designed to drive innovation in the water sector.
Ofwat has now finalised the details of its innovation competition and has made up to £200 million of funding available through a series of competitions during 2020 – 25.
