Regulierungsmodelle für die öffentliche Wasserversorgung und ihre Wettbewerbseffekte

Listed author(s):
  • Johann Wackerbauer


Angesichts der voranschreitenden Liberalisierungsbestrebungen und einer zunehmenden Internationalisierung der Wasserwirtschaft stellt sich die Frage, wie sich eine Änderung des Ordnungsrahmens in Deutschland auf die Marktstruktur und die Angebotsbedingungen auswirken würde. Die Wasserunternehmen in Deutschland haben in der Vergangenheit jährlich ca. 2,5 Mrd. € in einen hohen technischen Standard investiert, was hohe Kostenzuwächse und Preiserhöhungen zur Folge hatte. In den kommunalen Wasserbetrieben wird daher ein hohes Rationalisierungspotential vermutet. Die Frage nach der betriebswirtschaftlichen Effizienz und der Beteiligung privater Anbieter an den Wasserversorgungsunternehmen gewinnt damit zunehmend an Bedeutung. In diesem Beitrag wird die Organisation der Wasserwirtschaft in verschiedenen europäischen Ländern beschrieben sowie die aus einer Liberalisierung der Wasserversorgung zu erwartenden Wirkungen auf die Wettbewerbssituation in Deutschland diskutiert.
