Water performance plans: no upfront investment and no risk to you business.

When it comes to cutting your costs, you often need to invest to save. We understand that it can be difficult to find the capital to invest in solutions to drive down your utility costs. That’s why we’ve developed a water efficiency funding scheme – the water performance plan.

We’re so confident we can save your organisation money by improving your water efficiency that you’ll pay nothing until you start to save. And if you don’t save, you don’t pay.

How it works

With a water performance plan, you benefit from lower water charges without having to invest any capital. We cover all upfront costs and carry out any work or installation required. No catch, no risk; just a great deal for you.

We understand that performance contracting is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Consequently, we offer a range of performance contracting approaches to suit projects of all sizes and complexities including ‘Share in Savings’ and ‘First Out’ contract models.

What will we fund?

We’ll consider offering a water performance plan around any water consumption reduction initiative, including installation of water-efficient devices or finding and fixing a leak. We’ll even consider offering our performance plans around energy reduction projects.

Giving you confidence

To ensure fairness and transparency, our water performance plans include a comprehensive measurement and verification (M&V) approach. This provides clarity on how we calculate the savings, giving you total confidence that what we offer is fair, auditable and capable of delivering real benefit.

We follow guidance provided by the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol, which is widely used for the verification of savings from energy and water efficiency projects. It also helps to know it’s recommended by the UK Government.
