Please note that the report on August 2021 data will be the last Smart Meter Technical Details report Elexon produces, and is only for information.

The Smart Meter Technical Details report has been used to monitor compliance with Balancing and Settlement Code obligations regarding the sending of Meter Technical Details over the foundation and mass roll-out phases of the smart Meter roll-out.

Retail Energy Code

Since the introduction of the Retail Energy Code these obligations no longer sit within the Balancing and Settlement Code and instead are managed by the REC.
