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.

Summary of the data

During April 2020 SMETS v1.0 installs constitute the majority of exchanges (47.37% of total Meter installs over the month).

The number of SMETS v2.0 installs in April 2020 decreased from 146k to 7k. This can be attributed to the lockdown measures which were in place, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The proportion of late MTDs for SMETS v2.0 exchanges has increased (3.40% in March 2020 to 3.54% in April 2020).

The proportion of corrected MTDs for SMETS v2.0 exchanges has increased (0.72% in March 2020 to 0.75% in April 2020). The total number of SMETS v2.0 exchanges is still too low to raise concerns.

We note that in April 2020 reporting period, the number of SMETS v1.0 Meters installed decreased from 16k in March 2020 to 9k in April 2020.
