Severn Trent is “encouraged by the opportunities” of higher financial returns for ambitious and innovative companies in PR19.
In a trading update for the period to 19 July 2017, the company said that, as expected, PR19 “looks set to be a challenging review”.
It said it is making “good progress” on its business plan for AMP7, which will be submitted to Ofwat in September 2018.
Severn Trent has made a “good start” towards delivering its target net reward for 2017/18 customer outcome delivery incentive (ODI) outperformance of around £23 million, whilst also continuing to work towards delivering totex efficiencies of £770 million in AMP6.
