The Scottish Water Industry Innovation Panel’s Summary Report and Recommendations
About the Innovation Panel
The Scottish Water Industry has undergone transformational change in
recent years and, with Government leadership, has created a modern
regulatory framework that meets the needs of customers and stakeholders.
Scotland has been able to exploit its unique governance arrangements to
push forward novel and innovative approaches, such as the introduction
of retail competition and the introduction of a customer negotiated
The Scottish Water Industry Innovation Panel was formed in August 2013
at the instigation of the Water Industry Commission for Scotland. The
Innovation Panel set out to review Scottish Water’s innovative
approaches, assess further opportunities for innovative approaches and
assist Scottish Water in working with other stakeholders to develop
these further opportunities and address concerns.
The Panel has produced a report which summarises its key findings and
makes recommendations on a series of measures which will further enhance
the opportunities for innovation to flourish.
