The Inaugural Water Metering Summit

Dublin, Ireland
31 May 2011
Hosted By: Greenbusiness

Industry experts convened at this conference in Dublin on 31 May 2011 to discuss the national strategy on water metering in Ireland. Dr. William Baker, who leads NERA's Water Group, presented the afternoon keynote address, entitled "The Challenge of Pricing Water to Deliver Economic, Environmental, and Social Objectives." Dr. Baker's presentation discussed how water pricing helps ensure that consumers' choices balance the value and the costs of water and wastewater services, and the responses available if overly simple pricing might make water too expensive for some consumers. Dr. Baker drew on the approaches to economic, environmental, and social issues being used by water authorities around the world, and considered whether the lessons are relevant to Ireland.
