REPORT FROM THE INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM
A new type of Regulated Infrastructure Investment can attract billions of pounds of global investment into the UK’s infrastructure
A group of experts from the private and public sectors, has identified numerous sectors as being suitable for this investment boost, including rail, telecoms, carbon capture and storage, nuclear power generation, electric vehicle charge points, energy storage, social housing and flood defences.
The scale of infrastructure challenges facing the UK calls for innovative solutions. The industry sees this new investment model as being the right solution, in the right place, at the right time.
The report highlights that the Regulated Infrastructure Investment model provides a structure through which delivery risks can be shared between investors, contractors, developers, consumers and the taxpayer to incentivise efficient delivery of the investment at the best overall value for money
