Smart Meter Technical Detail Report

The Smart MTD report is used to monitor compliance with BSC obligations over the foundation and mass roll-out phases of the smart Meter roll-out. 

It provides: market level performance at sending late and corrected MTDs for both Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specification (SMETS) v1.0 and v2.0 Meters;  volumes of meter installations completed by meter type; and performance at first reconciliation run for all meter types.

Please note: this report is based on Meter Technical Details sent over the Data Transfer Network. It provides an insight into market performance, but not a complete view.

Overview: April 2018 reporting period

We note that in April 2018 reporting period the number of SMETS v1.0 Meters installed increased from 214k to 221k. SMETS v1.0 installs still constitute the majority of exchanges (82% of total Meter installs).

We observed the highest amount of SMETSv2.0 installs since the beginning of the rollout (145 in April 2018, which was almost twice as many as in March 2018). The proportion of late and corrected MTDs for SMETS v2.0 exchanges has fallen but remains high (12.47% and 1.11% respectively), however, the total number of exchanges is still too low to raise concerns.

Guidance note

The document provides guidance on each section within the smart Meter Technical Detail (MTD) report. This report will be presented to the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) on a monthly basis in its public session whilst the Settlement Risk associated with smart MTDs is considered significant.
