i-BUILD: Infrastructure BUsiness models, valuation and Innovation for Local Delivery

Lead Research Organisation: Newcastle University
Department Name: Sch of Engineering

Abstract

Our national infrastructure - the systems of infrastructure networks (e.g. energy, water, transport, waste, ICT) that support services such as healthcare, education, emergency response and thereby ensure our social, economic and environmental wellbeing - faces a multitude of challenges. A growing population, modern economy and proliferation of new technologies have placed increased and new demands on infrastructure services and made infrastructure networks increasingly inter-connected. Meanwhile, investment has not kept up with the pace of change leaving many components at the end of their life. Moreover, global environmental change necessitates reduced greenhouse gas emissions and improved resilience to extreme events, implying major reconfigurations of these infrastructure systems. Addressing these challenges is further complicated by fragmented, often reactive, regulation and governance arrangements. Existing business models are considered by the Treasury Select Committee to provide poor value but few proven alternative models exist for mobilising finance, particularly in the current economic climate.

Continued delivery of our civil infrastructure, particularly given current financial constraints, will require innovative and integrated thinking across engineering, economic and social sciences. If the process of addressing these issues is to take place efficiently, whilst also minimising associated risks, it will need to be underpinned by an appropriate multi-disciplinary approach that brings together engineering, economic and social science expertise to understand infrastructure financing, valuation and interdependencies under a range of possible futures. The evidence that must form the basis for such a strategic approach does not yet exist. However, evidence alone will be insufficient, so we therefore propose to establish a Centre of excellence, i-BUILD, that will bring together three UK universities with world-leading track records in engineering, economics and social sciences; a portfolio of pioneering inter-disciplinary research; and the research vision and capacity to deliver a multi-disciplinary analysis of innovative business models around infrastructure interdependencies.

While national scale plans, projects and procedures set the wider agenda, it is at the scale of neighbourhoods, towns and cities that infrastructure is most dense and interdependencies between infrastructures, economies and society are most profound - this is where our bid is focussed. Balancing growth across regions and scales is crucial to the success of the national economy. Moreover, the localism agenda is encouraging local agents to develop new infrastructure related business but these are limited by the lack of robust new business models with which to do so at the local and urban scale. These new business models can only arise from a step change in the cost-benefit ratio for infrastructure delivery which we will achieve by:
(i) reducing the costs of infrastructure delivery by understanding interdependencies and alternative finance models,
(ii) improving valuation of infrastructure benefits by identifying and exploiting the social, environmental and economic opportunities, and,
(iii) reconciling national and local priorities.

The i-BUILD centre will deliver these advances through development of a new generation of value analysis tools, interdependency models and multi-scale implementation plans. These methods will be tested on integrative case studies that are co-created with an extensive stakeholder group, to provide demonstrations of new methods that will enable a revolution in the business of infrastructure delivery in the UK. Funding for a Centre provides the opportunity to work flexibly with partners in industry, local and national government to address a research challenge of national and international importance, whilst becoming an international landmark programme recognised for novelty, research excellence and impact.

Planned Impact

The UK Treasury identified £250bn of upcoming infrastructure investment in its 2011 National Infrastructure Plan, while Local Authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships are planning substantial investments (e.g. Newcastle CC's hundreds of £millions of planned infrastructure by 2030). The OECD estimates infrastructure investments in 2000-2030 will be ~ US$71 trillion worldwide, or 3.5% of Gross World Product.

The i-BUILD Centre marries new economic theories and methodologies with engineering to bring about changes to practice specifically to improve business decisions around infrastructure design, delivery and operation via (i) consideration of interdependencies and (ii) improved quantification of the social, environmental and economic value derived from infrastructure. Thus i-BUILD will contribute to improving wellbeing, increasing economic competitiveness, reducing risks of failure and improving environmental sustainability. i-BUILD's focus on delivery of infrastructure at the local scale (even if commissioned nationally) will also increase public awareness of the benefits of infrastructure development.

Early impact derives early deliverables and co-creation workshops, via which end users (covering engineering, business, and local and national government) will shape priorities in subsequent research. The main beneficiaries are:
1) Organisations, private companies, hedge and pension fund managers, countries seeking to invest in infrastructure.
2) Local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships who (via City Deals, the Localism Act) have increased powers to raise funds and invest in infrastructure.
3) Central government departments and agencies (e.g. Infrastructure UK, DfT, DCLG) involved in infrastructure planning, regulation and provision.
4) Utility companies responsible for operating and maintaining infrastructure.
5) Engineering and multi-disciplinary consultants, by informing their consultancy services in the UK and internationally.
6) Students at th3 institutions.

Collaboration with the project partners will be managed to maximise impact by Rogers, who has extensive experience of linking research with practice in industry and government. An Expert Advisory Board will help steer the research and enhance dissemination and uptake, while our project partners will disseminate directly to the professional groups they represent.

i-BUILD supports the Research Councils in the delivery of their strategies: EPSRC - Delivering Impact (core to everything proposed), Shaping Capability (by creating an exceptional multi-disciplinary capability, building on an exemplary 10-year SUE base) and Developing Leaders (via formal and informal mentoring at all levels); ESRC - Economic Performance and Sustainable Growth (again at the bid's core), Influencing Behaviour and Informing Interventions (via i-BUILD's impact strategy) and A Vibrant and Fair Society (which a properly constituted infrastructure underpins). It supports the detailed strategies of Engineering (via the above, addressing all points under 'long-term sustainability of engineering research') and several Research Areas (e.g. Water Engineering, Energy Network, Resource Efficiency) across which the bid cuts.

The Pathways to Impact, developed in consultation with project partners, includes workshops (for dissemination and training), symposia and seminars that will make full use of our partnership's existing activities, while joint case studies and secondments with partners will maximise impact and relevance. A quarterly newsletter and the i-BUILD website will keep our project partners and the wider research and practice communities informed and attract new partners.

Through affiliated PhD students, funded from DTA and related IDC and DTCs in the partner universities, and research staff the i-BUILD centre will yield a new cohort of researchers with technical and multi-disciplinary skills that are sought in industry, business, as well as in academia.

Description Key achievements and mapping to objectives
Objective 1 - Establish hub of infrastructure expertise
The Research Centre is more than just a research programme. It must be a vibrant hub that stimulates creative and interdisciplinary thought and becomes a recognised centre for excellence. A key activity for the first 12 months was to establish the Centre and provide a platform for collaboration and interaction amongst academics and stakeholders. This has been achieved through the following mechanisms:
Sharing existing knowledge between partners.
Initial research team and stakeholder meetings focused on reviewing and disseminating the existing state of the art, including our own research, and using this as a basis to co-develop our research agenda with stakeholders. Working papers are used to report substantial, but intermediate, research progress.
Building a common language between engineers, scientists, economists and social scientists.
Our first meeting (held July 2013 prior to the official project start) immediately started to tackle this issue. Two key briefing notes have since been prepared that provide agreed definitions and set the reference for iBUILD research: 'Bridges n'that: An infrastructure definition for iBUILD' recognises that a narrow and purely asset-based definition of infrastructure constrains the development and implementation of alternative business models: a systems view of infrastructure is required that considers assets, operational and governance processes, resources that are conveyed, and the services such as warmth, sanitation, mobility that are provided. The second note defines 'Infrastructure Business Models' as how infrastructure systems create, deliver and capture economic, social and environmental values over the whole infrastructure life cycle.
Establishing frequent opportunities and different modes for contact between project partners
To ensure regular communication the full team meets every quarter, with an assembly every six months with stakeholders. A research fellows' network of our research associates and PhD students meets separately every quarter and is led by the 'core researcher' in each institution. Other research and stakeholder meetings take place as required - sometimes for Work Stream management, but also to tackle a specific topic such as 'business models' or 'valuing infrastructure' (see events list).
Our blog and website (www.ibuild.ac.uk) link with iBUILD Twitter users (#ibuild), and alongside six-monthly newsletters provide alternative means of communication and interaction.
Secondments of researchers, usually part-funded by collaborating organisations, are encouraged, examples include Adaptation Scotland; Department for Transport; Office for Low Emission Vehicles; Zero Carbon Futures; Office of Gas and Electricity Market.
Holding events to launch and promote the Centre's research programme
National Assemblies has been held in each of the project partner cities every six months. The first national meeting occurred in Birmingham (14 November 2013), Newcastle (2 April 2014), Leeds (12 November 2014), London (26th March 2015), Birmingham (Nov 2016), Leeds (June 2016) etc.. iBUILD Assemblies (i.e. a Stakeholder Day and a research team day) will continue at this frequency. In addition, the universities have held launch events and smaller, locally oriented, workshops and engagement events.

Objective 2 - Develop a portfolio of infrastructure business models
We have developed a conceptual framework to understand what infrastructure business models are. Alongside a database constructed from a review of over 160 alternative business models from around the world, and working in close collaboration with our stakeholder group, we have developed a typology for infrastructure business models categorisation, an infrastructure business model conceptual framework and analysis of the relationship between finance, funding and network architects. End-users are able to develop local alternative infrastructure business models by selecting categories such as: ownership, finance, funding (see left inset), value creation mechanism, infrastructure sector etc. Different combinations of these options allow users to construct conventional, or alternative business models.
Alternative infrastructure business models emerge through developing different combinations of partners involved in the value network, bundling infrastructure into new packages that creates additional revenue generation opportunities whilst spreading financing costs across infrastructures and developing and combining different or alternative funding or revenue sources and forms of financing.

Objective 3 - Challenge theories of infrastructure value
Existing approaches to valuing infrastructure take a narrow view of direct economic benefits and are unable to capture indirect economic, social and environmental benefits and costs at individual, community or political scales. iBUILD research has highlighted how understanding the social perception and use of infrastructure exposes a spectrum of benefits, we have adapted methods such as social and environmental accounting and audit, and social return on investment, for application to infrastructure and demonstrated how they are able to assess and capture these.
There are three main reasons why traditional assessment and evaluation approach of cost-benefit analysis may be inappropriate as an appraisal tool for infrastructure: (i) the uncertainty inherent in the long run and system-wide duration and impact of infrastructure; (ii) the interdependence of attitudes, preferences and behaviours of individuals with the infrastructure systems with which they interact (i.e. infrastructure can shape preferences and values so the latter cannot be used as fixed guides for evaluation); (iii) there is very little post-construction evaluation (and hence no data) of as-built infrastructure performance and the extent to which it delivers the types of benefits quantified in the cost-benefit analysis, and, (iii) the system-wide impacts of infrastructure on economic growth and society which require a system-wide analysis beyond the scope of standard cost-benefit analysis. iBUILD research has advanced 'Systems of Provision' economic theory and applied it to infrastructure case studies in order to take a broad and systemic view of economic costs and benefits. This is shown to help unlock future funding and financing by identifying economic values of the systems of infrastructure provision that include those benefits that are diffuse across the economy and society and over long timeframes. The work on System of Provision has been complemented by the use of a Social and Environmental Accounting methodology to provide data on pre-and post-construction value delivery.

Objective 4 - Reconcile aspects of infrastructure value and delivery across scales
Alternative institutional forms of organisation and modes of operation are emerging where infrastructure services are supplied by a range of actors - such as local authorities, social enterprises or community groups - often working together and through new institutional arrangements. Our analysis shows how these local infrastructure business models can deliver additional and wider benefits (e.g. local jobs, improved air quality, reduced fuel poverty, health etc.), but they face constraints which limit their upscaling and wider uptake. Initial iBUILD research has focused on the energy sector, with empirical case studies examining social enterprise, community and municipal energy companies in the UK and internationally to identify a range of archetypes (e.g. for possible Municipal Utility organisation and how that might relate to national infrastructure system shown inset).
Governance is a crucial mediator of the feasibility and effectiveness of a business model. This landscape is rapidly changing in the UK and as part of our analysis of infrastructure governance we have reviewed 'City Deals' and other devolution arrangements in the UK and elsewhere. Our analysis has shown current arrangements for the funding, financing and governance of infrastructure do not enable the full benefits of local infrastructure to be realised. Analysis shows this could be improved by greater fiscal decentralisation, complemented by a stronger and statutory devolved role for cities, city-regions and localities in the planning, development and delivery of infrastructure. This should be accompanied by support for a wider range of innovative local infrastructure financing mechanisms, including tax increment financing, municipal bonds, social impact bonds and crowd source funding approaches. However, these conditions are not provided in the devolution deals recently made by the British Government that we have studied.

Objective 5 - Bench test our methods on case studies
Place-based case studies bring together the multi-disciplinary expertise from across iBUILD to test our methods, toolkits and models, and demonstrate the value of alternative business model propositions to deliver better outcomes, or perhaps the same outcomes at reduced cost for end-users (e.g. local community, investors). A range of case studies across infrastructure sectors have been established in collaboration with stakeholder partners, who have provided considerable in-kind and in some cases additional direct funding to support our collaboration. The case studies act as a data resource for other work packages. Examples include:
Low Carbon Technologies - Heat Networks and Smart Grids: Analysis of engineering and social challenges relating to the development of local low carbon energy networks, and analysing alternative business models for how such networks can be used efficiently to deliver energy services to residential and commercial customers. Partners: Newcastle City Council; Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership.
Urban Retrofit: Assessment of the economic and environmental effectiveness of alternative business models for retrofitting houses. Working with an early mover in this area, we developed a model for testing national scale retrofit business models. This shows the considerable possible impacts of a revolving fund for EER, including reductions of up to 26% in the new investment required for national retrofit schemes or the financing of extensive subsidisation schemes at the local level. Partners: Kirklees Warm Zone.
Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD): Assessment of the multiple economic, social and environmental benefits of WSUD projects, that include use of green infrastructure and multi-functional transport networks, and using this knowledge to identify possible leverage opportunities for new finance and funding. Partners: ARUP, Newcastle City Council. Further funds were awarded in July 2015 to work with the City of Melbourne.
Electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure: Analyses of an extensive dataset from the Northeast of England to understand how different business models for EV recharging will affect the behaviour of EV drivers in terms of their recharging habits (time, location, duration etc.), willingness to pay, journey characteristics and potentially their overall EV usage. Furthermore, coupled analysis of energy and transport systems models, has demonstrated that distribution networks could accommodate higher growth in EVs than previous studies have suggested. Exploiting the geographic spread and different timings of EV charging can limit the impact on power infrastructure if distribution network operators collaborate with charging infrastructure operators. Partners: OLEV, OFGEM, Zero Carbon Futures, Charge Your Car, the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The Closure of Ovingham/Prudhoe Bridge: An investigation into the partial severance of two communities, Ovingham and Prudhoe, by the closure and reopening of a road and foot bridge. A range of valuation methods (including Social and Environmental Accounts, Engineering analysis, HM Treasury Green Book) have been applied and compared. These are supplemented by interviews with stakeholders such as residents and the project engineer and highlight how even small scale infrastructure disruption has local economic impacts, as well as reducing use of services, amenities and social interactions. Partners: Northumberland County Council, Residents and Contractors.
The Arrival of High Speed Rail (HS2) in Birmingham: To identify more opportunities to lever private sector funds, we have analysed potential interdependencies between infrastructure and enterprises. This 'enterprise-centred' approach has helped to identify new ways to fund and deliver local infrastructure in Birmingham's newly designated Creative Area around the planned new HS2 terminal. Partners: Birmingham City Council, Businesses, Landowners, Further Education College, Millennium Point, Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.
Real Costs of Third Party Interactions: The UK has a vast network of underground infrastructure assets, with a total length estimated to exceed 4 million km. The intensity of co-location of these underground assets often leads to 'third party damage' to adjacent buried utilities during street works. Analysis of 3,348 such incidents shows that the average damage repair direct costs per utility varies across sector: Electricity: £970; Gas: £485; Telecoms: £400; Fibre optic: £2,800; Water: £300; Sewer and drainage: £980. These do not include the indirect costs such as road user delay, loss of business, environmental damage etc. which can be significantly larger. Regulatory and commercial pressures incentivise industry to focus on minimising the direct costs at the expense of possible impacts on other utilities and social costs arising from street works. Partners: Transport for London, Heathrow Airport and Balfour Beatty.
The value of provision of walking and cycling infrastructure: A study of how infrastructure for these two modes may be provided in new ways to increase: value generation from such projects; value capture for investors and for benefits in other sectors such as health, reduce costs, and increase willingness to undertake such schemes. Different forms of financing such as social enterprise, crowd funding and philanthropy can all be bundled together to deliver effective infrastructure on a small scale. However, without systemic change in attitudes and exploiting interdependencies with other infrastructure (e.g. cycle stores and showers in offices, bike stores in stations) walking and cycling in the UK will not achieve Dutch levels. Project partners: Birmingham City Council, Leeds City Council, Newcastle City Council.
Exploitation Route In the final phases of the iBUILD programme, our strategic priorities are to:
1. Continue to hold regular general dissemination events.
2. Further influence the policy agenda in this field through the submission of evidence to consultations (e.g. including for the National Infrastructure Commission) and by participating in political events (e.g. as we did in fringe meetings at the last round of Labour and Conservative party conferences).
3. Most importantly, we will organise a series of joint dissemination events, tailored to specific constituencies and tied into the key integrating activities set out in Section 3. Priority events are:
• City and LEP stakeholders - in partnership with the RTPI and Core Cities;
• Engineers - in partnership with the ICE, Major Projects Association and CIRIA; and,
• The investment community - in collaboration with stakeholder partners PwC and Infrastructure UK.

Integrating activities
To build on our early successes, and fully to maximise the integration opportunities across the economic, social and engineering disciplines in iBUILD, we have planned a number of priority integrating activities that will add considerable value to our programme and ensure our energy and resources are focused on a finite number of deep impact activities:

1. Better valuation of infrastructure
Research integration activity: We have already been central to the recently released HM Treasury guidance on infrastructure appraisal, providing early iBUILD insights on economic resilience. However, we have a number of activities on Systems of Provision, Social Accounting, Environmental Accounting and Life Cycle Analysis that are providing information on a much wider set of infrastructure values. A major integrating activity is the development of our Infrastructure Valuation Framework that will provide a mechanism for incorporating these complex dimensions of value into infrastructure appraisal.
Policy and practitioner engagement mechanism(s): We will continue to organise events for key stakeholders including: (i) academics: an international conference on infrastructure valuation (led by iBUILD, with members of ICIF and ITRC involved); (ii) private finance: a workshop with key organisations such as National Association of Pension Funds, PwC and KPMG; and, (iii) a workshop and report for Infrastructure UK/?MPA? to feed into further updates of their infrastructure appraisal guidance.

2. A new paradigm for infrastructure engineering
Activity: We have developed improved approaches for (i) valuing infrastructure, (ii) structuring infrastructure business models, (iii) governance of infrastructure, and (iv) identifying infrastructure interdependencies. This is a pre-requisite, but not a guarantee, for improved infrastructure delivery. Work is underway to develop a framework to improve the process by which infrastructure decisions are made by harnessing and integrating these methodological components in a new infrastructure systems design process. Three case studies that have been developed (see mid-term report: Green infrastructure; Electricity supply; Streetworks) are being used in collaboration with relevant practitioners to test and refine the initial framework. Subsequently more complex case studies, such as HS2, will be undertaken.
Mechanism(s): As this centres around changing engineering practise, engagement will focus on interactive workshops and 'decision theatre' events with engineering practitioners, organised in partnership with the Institution of Civil Engineers and CIRIA (who have already partnered with us on two previous events) . We will hold a launch event to which the National Infrastructure Commission will be invited.

3. Managing and valuing public assets
Activity: Connecting with the international concerns about 'public wealth' and the management and valuation of public assets, this work builds upon the iBUILD research on the governance of infrastructure funding and financing in the City and Devolution deals in the UK. Linking across the value, scale and interdependencies themes within iBUILD, this study is developing a typology of different kinds of public infrastructure assets and the emergent strategies and practices for their management and valuation. The work will link inter-disciplinary researchers in each of the partner institutions and case studies from each city will be included.
Mechanism(s): The draft study will be road tested in a stakeholder roundtable with relevant organisations including the 'One Public Estate' team in the Cabinet Office, Local Partnerships, Local Government Association, city councils and private sector consultancies.

4. User's guide to decentralisation and infrastructure
Activity: Benefitting from an additional ESRC Impact Acceleration Account project secured by the team, iBUILD research on the funding, financing and governing of infrastructure is being developed into a 'User's guide to decentralisation'. This will provide practical suggestions to resolving challenges associated with the UK government's decentralisation agenda and legislative reform agenda in the Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill.
Mechanism(s): The project has run 3 roundtables in London, Manchester and Newcastle with senior policymakers in Whitehall, Local Government (local authorities, combined authorities, regional powerhouses etc.) and city-regions across the UK and will feed the user guide output into the Budget 2016 deliberations and beyond.

5. Compendium of business model case studies
A wealth of written and web- based data that other users can explore to develop their own business models.

6. Infrastructure performance metrics
Our research has provided HM Treasury's Infrastructure and Projects Authority with new approaches to measure and analyse the performance of infrastructure systems. This approach has received interest internationally and being tested by the government for future National Infrastructure Plans.

Results and Impact David and Goliath: Questioning the Financialisation of Infrastructure. Continuing the workshops on infrastructure and financialisation. The principal idea was to identify the dominant frameworks of financialisation / big finance solutions which can be observed in infrastructure and, as the main focus, explore alternatives to it. Strong advances of mutual understanding around key ideas such as financialsiation, systems of provision, business models, and co-evolutionary approaches. Catalyst for ideas for papers of various members of the group that draw on key interdisciplinary idea being forged across the group - e.g. use of systems of provision idea. Enhanced inter or trans-disciplinary research culture. There seemed to be clear development of mutual understanding and collective intellectual endeavour facilitated by previous workshops.
