To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, how many of the smart meters installed are SMETS 2 compliant.

The Government is currently finalising the second version of the Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications (SMETS 2). As SMETS 2 is not yet in force, no installed smart meters currently meet it. We expect SMETS 2 smart meters to be available for the main installation stage.

The first version of the specifications (SMETS1) was designated by the Secretary of State on 18 December 2012 to allow suppliers to install and operate smart meters during the Foundation Stage of the Programme if they so wish, and thus facilitate early learning and benefits.
