Demand Analysis of Direct-Drinking Water for Wanlu Lake and Simulated Research on Pricing Strategy
There is no precedent in China which supplies uniform drinking water for a city or a group of cities, thus to study drinking-water pricing for Wanlu Lake has realistic and application values. Firstly this paper analyses sensitivities of water prices and installation fees on drinking-water demand. And then based on constraints of net asset profit margins and debt service coverage ratio four pricing strategies are given. Finally, simulations are made and reasonable water prices are discussed for each strategy, which provides references for developing of the direct-drinking water project for Wanlu Lake.
