Water in the UK – Innovation for the 21st Century
Presented by Dr Dan Green, Head of Sustainability and Innovation, Wessex Water Services Limited
Abstract: The next 10-20 years will be ‘interesting’ for the UK water sector, with changing social expectations, new environmental regulation, an uncertain economic landscape, a bundle of stresses and shocks that will test resilience, and technological advances that we are only getting glimpses of today. How is the water sector innovating to make sure it continues to deliver benefits while the world changes? As well as looking ahead, this talk will also include a segment entitled ‘3000 years of water innovation in 300 seconds’!
