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: October 2018 reporting period

Summary of the data

We note that in September 2018 reporting period the number of SMETS v1.0 Meters installed increased from 197k  to 211k.  SMETS v1.0 installs still constitute the majority of exchanges (73.0% of total Meter installs).

We observed the highest amount of SMETSv2.0 installs since the beginning of the rollout (23k in October 2018 compare to 12k in September 2018 ). The proportion of late MTDs for SMETS v2.0 exchanges has increased (0.98% in September to 1.23% in October).  The proportion of corrected MTDs for SMETS v2.0 exchanges has decreased (0.06% in September to 0.04% in October). The total number of SMETSv2.0 exchanges is still too low to raise concerns.
