Europe Municipal Water Infrastructure: Utility Strategies & CAPEX Forecasts, 2016-2025


Release Date: September 2016, 89 Slides + Data Appendix 

Europe’s municipal water sector is at a crossroads– seeking to move past years of recession and policy obstacles to chart a new course for efficient, resilient, smart infrastructure. European utilities are now strategically mapping out their investment strategies to address climate change, increasing water stress, wastewater pollutants, and aging water networks.

Bluefield forecasts municipal utility capital expenditures for water and wastewater infrastructure across Europe to reach US$525 billion between 2016 and 2025. More than US$256 billion of this investment will be dedicated to maintaining and expanding Europe’s 6.7 million kilometers of aging and leaking pipe networks. Recent regulatory developments may unlock even more investment.
