Water supply will need to increase by around 24% between 2025 and 2050 if no action is taken to reduce consumption, according to the UK Environment Agency.
At the same time, the government has committed to reducing over-abstraction and returning water bodies to their natural state, a cause supported by many customers and stakeholders.

Join Moody’s, Dr Luis Correia da Silva - Partner Oxera Consulting, Rachel Fletcher- CEO Ofwat, Peter Simpson - CEO Anglian Water and Moody’s analysts to discuss what is needed if the water sector is to continue to deliver for customers and avoid a supply crisis.
