This discussion paper provides emerging thinking on our approach to risk and return for the next price review of water companies in England and Wales. We build on some of the key issues raised in our May consultation and reflect on the responses to it. This discussion paper is a further step in the development of our methodology for the full price review on which we will consult in summer 2022.
Where to send submissions
We welcome views on the emerging thinking in this discussion paper on risk and return for PR24 by 2 February 2022. Please email them to [email protected].
In our draft methodology in summer 2022, we propose to outline more comprehensively our overall approach for setting allowed returns and evaluating the balance of risk and return. Ahead of that, we will build on the further work signalled in this discussion document and carefully consider feedback and responses.
