Policy and Commercial


The wastewater sector spearheaded the development of AD in the UK, and it remains a significantly strong part of the sector. While uptake of AD is strong across the sector, there are a number of regulatory developments – namely driven by the EA and Ofwat – in progress that aim to shake-up the market.  This working group seeks to strengthen the collective voice of the industry while opening the dialogue between water companies and third parties.

Suggested aims:

  • To create an open dialogue between water companies and the wider AD industry at a time where the regulator is trying to develop the sector
  • To discuss Ofwat’s plans to introduce bid assessment frameworks and co-ordinate industry responses to water and sewage companies’ BAF consultations
  • To provide feed-in to ADBA’s response to relevant consultations

Suggested deliverables:

  • To develop an ‘ideal’ template standard for a bid assessment framework agreed between the water industry and potential third parties
  • To facilitate a coordinated response to the introduction of Bidding Assessment Frameworks by providing water companies the opportunity to engage directly with interested AD community members by presenting their BAF consultations
