The introduction of competition into the Scottish Water industry

John W. Sawkins

Utilities Policy, 2012, vol. 20, issue 1, 22-30

Abstract: The Scottish Water and sewerage market for non-household customers was opened to retail competition on 1st April 2008. This development, unique in the history of the British water and sewerage industry, was the culmination of a decade-long process of industrial and regulatory restructuring in a country renowned for its attachment to exclusive public sector provision of utility services.
