About Consultation

This consultation sets out our proposed approach for the innovation fund over the next price review period (2025-30) and asks key questions to capture your views to help shape and evolve our approach.

We’re consulting on changes to make the fund achieve an even greater impact, including doubling its size to £400 million for 2025-30 and introducing new competitions to develop the bold, transformational innovations that the water sector needs

We would like to hear from anyone who may be interested in applying for the fund or is interested in the outcome of the fund such as:

  • academia;
  • charities;
  • consultancies;
  • customers and customer representative bodies;
  • industry bodies and associations;
  • manufacturers;
  • new appointment and variations (navs);
  • non-governmental organisations;
  • other regulators;
  • start-ups;
  • supply chain organisations;
  • technology providers;
  • water companies; and
  • water retailers.

You can respond to this consultation online via our survey, by email [email protected] or by post (details in the consultation). We welcome your response by Tuesday 30 April 2024.
