To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how many SMETS1 smart meters have been fitted in domestic premises in each nation and region of the UK since the start of the smart meter roll-out.

We are unable to provide statistics on smart meter installations broken down by region and nation.

Collectively across both large and small suppliers, around 7.36 million smart meters (SMETS1) have been installed in domestic properties in Great Britain to the end of June 2017.

It should be noted that large supplier statistics are collected at the end of each calendar quarter and small supplier statistics are collected annually, at the end of the calendar year. Therefore installations carried out by small suppliers since 31 December 2016 are not reflected in the above figure. The rollout is also across Great Britain only.
