To ask Her Majesty's Government whether Ofwat has calculated the levels of water efficiency savings that were made in the non-household water retail marketplace in (1) 2018, and (2) 2019.
21 December 2020
Ofwat makes an annual Request for Information to retailers, concerning their activities in the business retail market. This includes a request for information and data concerning water efficiency and the extent to which business customers have saved water as a result of water efficiency measures.
Business customers who have elected to become ‘Self-suppliers’ – generally large consumers of water - reported significant water efficiency savings in 2019. Eight self-suppliers, for example, reported saving around 567Ml in 2019 - approximately 5% of their 2019 consumption.
