Supply/Demand Planning

Supply/Demand Planning

Effective water resources management is a central strategic and commercial consideration for water companies and is an issue that affects the welfare of all consumers. NERA has been instrumental in the development of industry best practices in many key areas and has assisted water companies and government agencies with the economic aspects of the water resources planning process, including:

  • Analyzing the economics of metering domestic and non-domestic customers, as a tool for demand measurement and pricing;
  • Forecasting industrial, commercial, and residential water demands;
  • Forecasting household meter opting patterns and estimating the impact of metering on consumption;
  • Developing optimal programs of resource, leakage, and demand management schemes for meeting projected supply-demand imbalances; and
  • Advising on regulatory and financial issues surrounding large capital investment proposals.
