PR24 useful documents

Useful PR24 documents are listed below.

There are many ways to get involved with PR24: we use a range of approaches to meaningfully engage with stakeholders to test our policy thinking. We regularly undertake workshops and working groups on PR24, where we engage with stakeholders to help us improve our approach to delivering the right outcomes; our approach to assessing costs; and our approach to assessing allowed returns at PR24. To help develop the common reference scenarios and long-term delivery strategies, we’ve held specific workshops with companies, regulators and stakeholders. We undertake specific engagement with the Investor community, including regular roundtables on PR24.

There is also the Future Ideas Lab, which is a place for anyone to submit their ideas on how Ofwat could evolve the price review to meet the challenges faced by the water sector.

We have also published the cost assessment datasets.
