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.
