Michael Rouse shared his expertise on water regulation at a seminar organised by the University of Valencia on behalf of the Spanish Government.

On 29-30 April 2014, experts from a number of countries, as well as Spanish government and utility stakeholders gathered at the event ‘The future of urban water regulation in Spain’. The aim was to share experiences and solutions from around the world and analyse the situation in Spain with a view to deciding what form of regulation should be adopted there.

There was international attendance by invitation from UK, Portugal, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Chile and Columbia. Michael Rouse presented the history and experience of UK regulation since 1990, gave his views on its relevance to Spain and highlighted important experience from elsewhere in the world. The attendance from Spain covered all relevant national government departments, regional governments and water and wastewater service providers, involving around 150 people.
