The Natural Rate of Rise in Leakage

 
Price: £16  

This research examines the theoretical and empirical determinants of the natural rate of rise in leakage (NRR) over time, in order to advance the development of an 'NRR Equation' which can be used to produce reliable estimates of the NRR over a wide variety of different DMA conditions. Once derived from a sound empirical basis, such a specification might not only be utilised to determine optimal DMA intervention and exit times and the unit costs of leakage control, but might also be appropriately calibrated in order to produce a measure for asset condition and deterioration.
